Started coaching at Rising Tide: 2020
What Emma loves about Irish dance: I have always loved the Irish dance community. It is positive, inclusive, supportive and it is about promoting Irish culture and traditions.
What Emma loves about coaching: I enjoy coaching because it is about sharing my love of dancing with younger dancers. It is a very rewarding experience because you get to see the dancers progress into the best dancers they can become. I love encouraging the dancers to keep trying and working hard, while also having fun in dance class.
Emma’s favourite Irish dance memory: My favourite Irish dance memory is dancing on the world stage with my best dance friends for teams at the World Irish Dance Championships in April 2023. The feeling of dancing on the world stage is indescribable because of how much joy and freedom I felt dancing that day. Sharing that experience with my dance friends and my coaches is something I will always remember.
Something dancers are likely to hear Emma say in class: Dancers will hear me say KEEP GOING! if they stumble or make a mistake, the best thing to do is keep going and dance and never give up!!
