Meet Emily!

Emily is a Washington native who began her dance journey at Divine in 2016. She fell in love with the studio, which allows women to freely explore their bodies and emotional depths. Dance has allowed her to express herself in ways she never thought possible. She strives to create a nurturing and freeing space for her students to delve into their own journey and discover new parts of themselves.

Present and mindful. I strive to allow my students space and/or support, whatever they need in their journey.
