Emily grew up dancing, singing and doing drama. She passed numerous drama exams growing up and won prizes at various competitions. At the age of 11 she enrolled in Stonelands Stage School (part time) and took ballet, modern, jazz, tap, singing and drama classes until the age of 16. Since this Emily has performed regularly whilst building a career in marketing until she had her daughter.
Watching her daughter grow up around dance and music, Emily saw first-hand how it helped her build a sense of rhythm, develop coordination, muscle memory and also how much enjoyment she got from it. Emily saw that it was natural for a child to move to music and how much fun it was for her doing so. Therefore, she made the decision to join the Jittabugs Theatre School franchise where she received training in teaching kids dance classes and other theatrical activities.
She has been running Jittabugs Theatre School in Brighton and Hove for over a year now offering ballet and dance classes in Brighton and Hove including ballet and creative dance classes for ages 2-5 years, 4-6 years, 5-9 years and 7-12 years and also ShowBugs musical theatre for 4-7 years and 5-9 years.
