Emily Gilbert – Hip Hop and Musical Theatre
Miss Emily began dancing at 5yrs old at DFX and over the years has studied Hip Hop, Jazz, Ballet, and Contemporary. She has achieved great exam results at a high excellence/distinction level including being in the top 5 in NZ for RBM hip hop exams at Level 7.
Emily started competing at age 11 in troupes, solos, and duos. She was a Follow Your Dreams National Champion in 2018/2019 and a Dance NZ Made Nationals runner-up & Regional Winner in 2019/2020. Emily has been choreographing comp squad solo/duo routines for younger members since 2020 and is the choreographer for our junior Hip hop squad for 2021. Emily is teaching Hip hop and Musical Theatre this year.
Emily’s feelings about dance are that it is truly a way of self-expression & freedom of movement. She loves the way it makes her feel and enjoys finding new ways to move.
