Emi began her dancing career with Pofahl Studios at age 9. There she has been able to train in a variety of styles including ballet, tap, jazz, and contemporary. She has danced and toured in many of the Dance Alive performances since she was young including Midsummer Night’s Dream, LadyBug Action Hero, and The Nutcracker. As she has grown, she has come to perform in many more of Dance Alive’s productions. Emi has attended summer dance intensives including Orlando Ballet, Alonzo Lines Ballet, and Kansas City Ballet where she was exposed to even more styles and teachers. Emi is now following the footsteps of her father who danced with Dance Alive for several years as part of his professional career.
