I love to dance and when I mentioned a totally different twist to the typical slow "first dance" most couples do my husband was ecstatic, but with our busy schedules we were not sure how it would fit in the formula. Not to mention we planned ou...
r wedding in two months and boy did it go by fast!
So where do I begin, we were on our way to California from Washington DC to meet with our photographers for our photo shoot. Meanwhile, I was doing a Yelp search for dance choreographers, since I knew there would be no time in DC and came across Emma. I thought to myself just when I saw her pic that I loved her already not to mention her clients love her too.
A few days later on our way to do our engagement shoot we were talking to our photographers and his team about the 💃🏻 plans I had for my husband and I for the week ahead, I mentioned that I booked with Emma they were all shocked. Our photographers simply said you are in great hands, she is the best and one of them proceeded to call her on the spot. They spoke a few minutes and then he handed the phone to me and we clicked instantaneously and she fit us in right away.
From our initial phone call, dance practices, days leading up to the wedding, and after I cannot express how thankful we were to have met Emma. She is a beautiful, genuine, fun, real, energetic, and not to mention awesome dancer! We had less than a week to choreograph 5 different genres of music 🎶 including Persian, Armenian, French/ Arabic, and Spanish with different tempos and movement, but we made it happen, thanks to Emma believing in us.
So the day finally arrived, all the dance practices we did, videos we watched from our lessons, facetime sessions with Emma we could not let ourselves or Emma down. After all her students are a reflection of her and there was not one person who could not wait till we perform. So as thing don't always go as planned, the live band started to play " Aicha" (one of the songs included in our mix because that's how and where it all started, so thanks to our countless dance practice and sessions with Emma we winged that portion. About an hour later, our dj played our mix of the first dance it was supposed to be 4 1/2 minutes but turned out to be 8 minutes. Again, thanks to Emma dor prepping us and giving us the confidence to dance with our hearts and let loose.
So to sum things up, Emma is like the meaning behind her name which means universal. As Jenna Dewan says "Dance doesn't have a language, Dance is a universal language, and whether you know how to dance or grew up training in dance, you have a respect for people who love to dance, and it's also visually very entertaining to watch a great dancer. "
Further, she is very talented and passionate about making sure her students know their dance and having fun while learning. Dancing is in her soul. I instantly bonded with Emma when I met her because she could understand my passion for dance and understand how therapeutic it is and was. I recommend Emma in a heartbeat as she exerts her positive energy on others and I have no doubt that anyone around her will see through her passion for dance.
