Emily feels passionately about sharing dance practice and disseminating research findings in order to advance the art form.
Due to her success in the area of Dance and Health, she often speaks at conferences and events about her experiences, highlighting the benefits of dance in this context.
She has presented work both nationally and internationally, including France, Russia and Ireland.
As much of her work encompasses practice based research, Emily presents through lecture demonstrations as well as informational talks.
Seeking to develop dance in social and health sectors, she has facilitated workshops for health care professionals in hospitals, cancer care Centres and hospices.
Emily has recently presented at the London Cancer Psychosocial Forum, at the Movement and Mental Health Association of Social Anthropologists conference in Oxford, and at Barts Health NHS Trust staff away day. She also hosted a Move Dance Feel Symposium in April 2019 to publicly share the latest research outcomes.
