Emily Newell has been dancing since she was 3 years old. Trained classically in both Russian and Cecchetti ballet as well as jazz and lyrical, Emily was part of our dance family from the age of 12 to 18, and competed for our studio for those 6 years. During her years of academic study at Niagara College for Fitness and Health Promotion and Brock University for Kinesiology, Emily completed her Advanced I levels in Cecchetti ballet and began teaching the next generation of bunheads and dance dudes here at Ballet Etc.. She has been a dedicated member of our team for 6 years now in a variety of disciplines including strength and conditioning. Drawing on her knowledge of biomechanics and her love of dance she loves getting to teach body awareness and connection to the style and music. As a Canadian Certified Pedorthist she is most passionate about the tool our dancers use most often; their feet, and encourages a safe learning environment to strengthen their bodies and their love of dance.
