“After working intensely with Emma for two years, I can confidently say her work ethic and performance consistency are unparalleled. There is nothing Emma can’t attack and bring to life, she inspires everyone in the room (including me).”
– Heather Dotto, Choreographer

Born in Vancouver, BC, Emma Willey began dancing at the young age of four. She trained competitively in a variety of styles, including ballet, jazz, lyrical, contemporary, stage, and hip-hop. In 2012, she received a scholarship to The Hollywood Summer Tour in LA, where she found the drive to pursue a professional dance career.

Emma graduated from The Dance Initiative in 2015, which expanded her dance versatility and introduced her to extended training in aerial silks, static trapeze, and hoop at Vancouver Circus School. She has gone on to put her skills set to use in a variety of live shows with Patrick Roberge Productions Inc., as well as live performances with The Lovers Cabaret, Vancouver Spring Show, The Main Event, and many more.

Emma has built a strong resume as a dancer for film & television. Favourite credits include multiple seasons of CW’s Riverdale; Disney’s Hall of Villains/“Queen of Mean Remix”; multiple seasons of NBC’s Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist; Lifetime’s Britney Ever After; and The Christmas Chronicles 2 on Netflix.

Continuously honing her craft and expanding her skill set, Emma has also trained in motion capture, voiceover, and singing. Recently, she’s been exploring the world of acting for film & television under the training of Ingrid Torrance. Credits include CW’s Charmed and Nintendo Switch commercials.

When she’s not dancing, Emma can be found choreographing, teaching, and supporting her peers and the next generation of dancers. She has her hand on the pulse of beginner-elite competitive dance, with her choreography consistently receiving special awards and recognition every season. Her love for dance and helping others has helped shape her reputation as a high energy and passionate teacher.
