Emily is a crossover dance artist who frames American Vernacular Dance to include broad ranges of movers and styles, from traditional Appalachian flatfooting to hip hop. She is artistic co-director of Good Foot Dance Company with Matthew Olwell, making "trad dance theater." Emily's performance highlights include appearing with The Chieftains, Lunasa, Green Fields of Ireland, and the Carolina Chocolate Drops -- and at the Aulney All Blues festival in France, Wheatland Music Festival, the Newport Folk Festival with Seeger's Clogging All-Stars, Jacob's Pillow's Inside/Out Stage, and a U.S. State Department tour in Russia with "The Meaning of Buck Dance," a collaboration with Good Foot, Urban Artistry, and Baakari Wilder. Emily received her MFA in Dance at the University of Maryland, is a Certified Movement Analyst, and pioneered the first undergraduate degree devoted to American Vernacular Dance at Davis & Elkins College.
