About Emma

20160211_133935Emma looks forward to welcoming you to her dance classes – they are full of fun, laughter, friendship and lovely music.  Come along anytime, you’ll always be welcome!

A little bit about Emma:

Emma’s first love was childhood Gymnastics which led to the wonderful world of Ballroom dancing in her teens. She is now in her early 40s (eeek!) and is still in love with the magic and technique of both!

Along with teaching Ballroom, Latin, Kizomba and authentic Vintage dancing to adults, she is delighted to teach Gymnastics and Dance to little ones at St Joseph’s Primary School. Her gymnastics team won first place 2 years running in the yearly inter-school competition (2019, 2020) and her primary school dance group has performed twice at the Wyvern Theatre in front of sold out audiences for the Wiltshire Dance Festival (2019, 2020).  She is so proud of all of her students!

Emma has also had the privilege of working with a range of clients and health professionals over the years as a Remedial Massage Therapist.  This helped to develop her knowledge of the body and how it moves in relation to injury and restriction.  Click here to be taken to her Massage Therapy page!  She loves daily Yoga, enjoys studying the movement works of Rudolf Laban, Alexander Technique, dance history, and exploring the dances and music of other cultures.

Emma’s movement qualifications:

  • International Dance Teachers Association: Professional Teacher of Dance qualified to teach both Ballroom Dancing and Latin-American Dancing.
  • British Gymnastics: Primary School Gymnastics Teacher
  • British School of Yoga: Children’s Yoga Teacher (current study)
  • Enhanced DBS
  • Holds a valid Music Licence with PPL/PRS Ltd to play music as a Dance Teacher

Emma suffered a life changing head injury in May 2016 and really understands the need to learn and move at your own unique pace. After a period of recovery time, she was so pleased to ease back into dancing, gymnastics and yoga.  She looks forward to seeing you at one of her classes sometime soon!

Emma spends her free time with her rescue animals (her gorgeous fur-family) and caring for all of the wildlife in her garden ❤ ❤ ❤
