Emma’s introduction to Spanish dance began in the early 1990’s during her studies at the Universidad Complutense de Madrid, Spain. After a few years Emma revisited the roots of Flamenco, training intensively at the prestigious Flamenco school Escuela Amor de Dios in Madrid under world renowned bailaores. Inspired by Flamenco’s beauty, she conceived and founded Fundación Centro Flamenco. Presently, she divides her time between Centro Flamenco and traveling to Spain where she continues to hone her craft and develop her personal style. In the Foundation's 10th year Emma explored a new facet of flamenco by writing and directing the original flamenco ballet "La Luna Roja". Through the Foundation's many shows and its annual recitals, where Emma takes the reigns as Artistic Director, Emma strives to continue breathing life into FCF's vision and keep flamenco fresh, alive and relevant to the next generation of dancers and a new audience.
