Teaching theater and dance to children brings Emily great joy. As a child, she danced with Somerset Ballet and spent her summers at Camellot Academy, a performing arts camp. After earning a BFA in Dance, Emily taught for the Kansas City Ballet School and became the School Director in 2012. She taught for the State Street Ballet of Santa Barbara, California, and directed youth theatre and ballet programs in Durango, Colorado until 2020 when she began pursuing her MA in Library Science. Emily is happy to be the Library Media Specialist for the Pembroke Hill Lower School and return to teaching ballet for KCBS.
