Your coach, teacher and expert

Emily is a key performer on the live television production Dancing With The Stars Ireland where she’s reached the final twice and is currently approaching her 6th season. The show format requires Emily to use her remarkable choreography talent to create a new dance routine every week and teach a celebrity partner with no dance experience in preparation for the live show.  

Emily started dancing at the age of 7 and rose to a British Junior Champion in Ballroom and Latin dancing and represented Team GB at the Junior World Championships. Emily has an outstanding ability to adapt her dancing skills to a variety of genres and has been centrally involved in professional dance shows ‘Burn the Floor’ and ‘Rip it Up' where she was leading lady to Jay McGuiness of 'The Wanted' and Harry Judd of 'McFly' both of whom have achieved Strictly Come Dancing success. Emily has toured for two consecutive years with Strictly Come Dancing Giovanni Pernice.   A personal highlight of Emily's career was being part of the dance spectacular for the BBC televised British Legion Remembrance celebration at The Royal Albert Hall in 2017.

With business acumen, Emily created a unique and innovative business ‘MAD HOT FIT’ to help improve confidence, self-belief and mental health through the art of dance and fitness.
