Due to a shortage of quality training in the areas of Community Dance and Dance and Health, Emily is committed to providing professional development opportunities.
As an experienced and compassionate artist, she offers educational workshops and practical mentoring so that others can dance and learn alongside her.
Emily runs an artist training programme though Move Dance Feel, sharing knowledge and elements of practice that are specific to working with dance in the context of cancer diagnosis and recovery.
She is also a mentor for Trinity Laban’s Dance and Health Learning Group, and has acted as an adviser for students on their Postgraduate Diploma in Community Dance course.
In 2018 she was invited by Switch2Move, a Netherlands based dance company, to deliver a professional development project in St Petersburg. She worked with a mixed group of professional dancers, choreographers, circus performers and social workers to share knowledge about Community Dance, and demonstrate its potential within Dance and Health contexts.
