Emily Wilson's Bio

Emily Wilson is the mother of three elementary aged children and new member of the “Moment in Time” dance company.  Her academic studies in college included minoring in Dance. During her studies she had the opportunity to take a variety of dance history and movement classes including the Alexander technique, West African dance and Laban Movement Analysis as well as choreograph her own dances and perform in guest and student choreographed pieces each year. 

Emily's performing arts developed from a young age originally with voice lessons and auditioning in Boston, MA for the part of "Cosette" in Les Miserable.  While she recalls having a bit of stage fright at the downtown skyscraper (John Hancock) building that day, she found her singing voice in her community churches where she would sing in front of a large crowd, often accompanied by her sister playing the piano.  Emily found the Mary Flynn Murphy school of dance during her time living in Belmont, MA and had a wonderful experience with trying ballet, tap and jazz for the first time.  

When her family relocated to Salt Lake City, UT she found a creative movement class at the Virginia Tanner school first and
 then started to study ballet at the Christensen Center, and joined a musical theater group. She recalls her strict Russian
teacher whom she will never forget for teaching her the importance of working hard in ballet class, and introducing her
to pointe shoes. Emily then found the Ballet West conservatory, where she studied ballet technique and pointe, character,
 jazz, and pilates.  She performed in their "Nutcracker" for 4 years as a child, in the roles of "buffoon", "party girl" and as
"Clara" for a statewide tour to elementary schools.  She also performed as a solo child in Ballet West's "Midsummer Night
's Dream".  

Emily has attended several dance workshops during her college and post college years including the American Dance
 Festival on scholarship, a Merce Cunningham intensive in NYC and most recently, a Martha Graham intensive.  
She enjoys
 drop-in adult ballet classes when possible&especially her regular modern dance technique classes with Rosalind Schrodt.

On returning to the US she danced with the CETA funded company called Dance a la Carte in L.A. and started teaching in Ashland in the 1980’s and dancing with Oregon Dance Theater.  She then moved to New York and appeared on Broadway in Meet Me in St. Louis and The Secret Garden, doing many off Broadway and regional productions as well.
