    From Monee, Illinois, Emily began dancing when she was three. She studied at Faubourg School of Ballet and then the Ruth Page Center of the Arts, where she trained under beloved ballet master Larry Long and was also a member of Civic Ballet of Chicago. Emily was one of the first trainees for Joffrey Ballet in Chicago, where she danced with the company in Paquita at the Joffrey Gala. She spent 2010–12 in the Milwaukee Ballet II program, where her main teachers were Mireille Favarel, Rolando Yanes, and Karl von Rabenau. Some of Emily’s favorite dances she performed with MBII include Diana and Acteon, Pas de Quatre, Tarantella, Clowns and Others, and Mauro de Candia’s Something I Had in Mind. While in MBII, she also performed with Milwaukee Ballet in Michael Pink’s Esmeralda, Nutcracker, Coppélia, Dracula, Peter Pan and in Lila York’s Celts. Emily attended summer intensives at Boston Dance Lab, Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet, Kaatsbaan, Orlando Ballet, BalletMet, and Milwaukee Ballet. Now in her fifth season with Minnesota Ballet, she has danced such roles as Lucy in Dracula, Sugar Plum Fairy in The “Manhattan” Nutcracker, Svetlana in Firebird, Titania in A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Princess Rose in Sleeping Beauty, and in George Balanchine’s Who Cares? and Salvatore Aiello’s Clowns and Others. For her portrayal of Columbine in Harlequinade Pas de Deux, the News Tribune praised her “pristine lines that are the signature part of her style as a dancer.”
