Emily Greenwell moved to New York from Michigan where she studied and taught at a Performing Arts High School, various studios, and colleges in the area. Upon moving to the city she booked a tour with Oz the Musical, directed by American Idol Finalist Todrick Hall. She then went on to continue her studies of dance by completing the Professional Semester at Broadway Dance Center.
This year Emily had the opportunity to work with Jeremy Miller performing his work in the Steps Performance Lab. Last December, Emily traveled to Argentina as a guest teacher in Buenos Aries. There she performed the work of Derek Mitchell in the JM studio’s annual showcase. More recently she has assisted Derek Mitchell with projects such as SYTYCD Ukraine, Bryant Park FlashMob, music videos for artists Sylvia Tonsun and Irina Jade, The Pulse, Carnival, Sybrite, and the Pushing Progress Showcase to name a few.
Through assisting and performing, Emily found her own voice of creativity. She developed a method of teaching and passion to choreograph. Her choreography was most recently featured in Broadway Dance Center’s first fashion show, Sweet Fashion, this past summer. Her teaching method focuses on a combination of technique, strength, musicality, and expression. She is a firm believer that class should be a release from reality as well as a challenge of the mind and body.
Emily is so grateful to be living her dream in the Big City and sharing her love for art through movement.
