About Emily Kline
Three Phrases that Describe my Dance Background:
- I studied dance at Encore Dance Center my whole entire life (literally... I was born into the Encore family!)
- I went on to major in Dance at DeSales University and graduated with my BA in Dance in 2016! During my time at DeSales, I was on the DeSales University Dance Team for all 4 years and also taught hip hop classes on Saturday mornings through a student-run youth dance program, the Conservatory of Dance.
- In addition to teaching at Encore, I continue to push myself as a choreographer/artist by creating professional work and submitting it to several dance showcases and events all around PA!
My Role at Encore Dance Center:
Instructor, Choreographer for Encore Performance Company & Photographer ... and doing whatever else my mother tells me to do...
Dance Classes I Teach:
- Contemporary Dance Classes
- Hip Hop Dance Classes
- Jazz Dance Classes
- Ballet Dance Classes
- Modern Dance Classes
- Lyrical Dance Classes
- Toddler Dance Classes
- Tap Dance Classes
Fellow Encore staff member Melissa Faller and myself started our own professional dance company, emme dance collective! We always have performances lined up at several events and showcases... some of which you may see us at with Encore! This has been a dream of mine since I started studying dance in college and it's still so surreal for Melissa and I. (Quick plug: follow us on Instagram and like us on Facebook!) Also... additional fun fact... Alvina is my mom, so my mom is my boss.
Favorite Encore Recital:
It's so hard to pick because Recital week is my FAVORITE time of the year, every year! But if I really had to choose, I'd have to say FAME (2012), because that was my senior year recital!
When I'm not at Encore:
... um... when am I not at Encore?! JK! Well, kinda... But in all seriousness, I'm probably spending time with my friends and family and obsessing over my niece, Maddie Mae!
