Emily Lowrey started dancing at the age of 3. She moved to Northfield, NH at the age of five and joined the Creative Steps Dance Company, studying Ballet, Jazz, Hip Hop, Lyrical, Contemporary, and Tap. Emily’s love for Tap took off from a young age, and she went on to win American Dance Awards “Dancer of the Year” for three consecutive years. She was also awarded many first place awards and titles through International Dance Challenge, Starquest Performing Arts, Dance Educators of America, Showstoppers Talent Quest and many more. Though passionate about the competition world, Emily remained equally passionate about pursuing her dance education and attended many festivals and conventions in Boston and New York with choreographers such as Tyce Diorio and Mike Minery. Emily spent her teen years involved with a love for theatre and acting. She danced and acted at The Palace Theatre in Manchester NH, and through local community productions; performing roles such as “Puck” in A Midsummer Night’s Dream, and Molly the orphan in Annie. Emily has a love for choreography. At age 16, she choreographed her first tap piece, and was awarded a high score in choreography. She has been choreographing in tap, jazz, hip hop and contemporary since; doing solo competition pieces and group numbers as well. After pursuing a management career and taking course work, she accepted a position back at her hometown studio and taught dance at Creative Steps. During the pandemic, Emily founded a nonprofit global tap competition for children stuck at home to submit entries during their time away from the studio for education and fun. She loves to work with the students and believes that dance is a way to share your inner passions and feelings. Emily wants her students to feel as though they have a sacred place of expression every time they enter her class.
