Introduction: I began pursuing my passion for dance under the direction of Sherri Davis at Georgia Academy of Dance and the Performing Arts in Peachtree City, Georgia. During my time at GAD, I spent summers training at Atlanta Ballet, the Rock School of Dance, and Alonzo King’s LINES Ballet. My training and dance education continued at the University of Georgia where I graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Dance in 2015. During my time at UGA, I danced in CORE Concert Contemporary and Aerial Dance Company where I spent hours training on lyra, trapeze, silks, and sling, and was a member of the Ballroom Performance Group where I performed various forms of ballroom, Latin and swing styles. While there, I had the opportunity to perform in works choreographed by Joanna Mendl Shaw, Charlotte Boye-Christensen, Luis Piedra, Urban Bush Women, and Alexandre Munz, and toured aerial performances at various events including the World Dance Alliance Conference in Vancouver, B.C. Upon graduation, I attended a two week contemporary intensive in Sorrento, Italy with Staibdance, and is now teaching and performing with Dancefx, Atlanta Dance Collective, and Zouk Atlanta.

Emi is an excellent dancing teacher. We booked 4 sessions with her for our upcoming wedding dance. Before going to her place, we had no experience with dancing and no idea how to design our wedding dance. Emi is professional, knowledgeable and super patient with her students. We could mot make to one appointment, her and her husband recorded two videos for us to show us the missing content. Now we feel confident with our wedding. These 4hr sessions are life change. I highly recommend Emi to any couples who is nervous about their firsr dance. You wont regret!!

Emi is a fantastic instructor. I came to her with a little bit of swing experience, but had been looking to transition to more of the Latin-style dances. She has done an incredible job adapting to where I am, and building a solid foundation for me. My dancing confidence has increased dramatically because of this. Emi has such a passion for dance, is very patient, kind, and fun to dance with! All important things you should be looking for in a dance instructor. I highly recommend her.

Emi is the absolute best! She is always super friendly and easy going. I have been learning tap dance with her for over a month now and these lessons are truly the highlight of my week. She makes it fun to learn even when it's getting difficult. She has been super accommodating with finding a studio for us to practice in and with any cancellations I have thrown her way. I would suggest Emi to anyone looking for a teacher to learn a new groove. Thanks Emi!! You're the real MVP.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    The first thing we'll do is sit down and talk about your goals. We'll come up with a strategy that you feel comfortable with so that we can get you to where you want to be! Always always ask me any and all questions. My promise to you is that I will be honest, judge-free, and set realistic and achievable goals, and all I ask in return is to have open communication!

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I started teaching when I was 17 years old and when I went off to college, I earned my Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Dance at the University of Georgia. My course load included several pedagogical classes including Teaching Children's Dance, Issues in Dance Education and Pedagogy, and several hours of teaching practicums. Since graduation I have continued to teach lessons for First Dances, First Dates, Bachelorette Parties, competition prep, and for the serious dancer preparing for auditions!
