“Emily and I worked together on a collaboration....The process was fluid and fun from beginning to end, and Emily brought creativity and enthusiasm to every discussion. I enjoyed working with Emily, and highly recommend her for her artistic vision and abilities.” - Vince Ready Lasting Light Photography
WHAT IS A CHOREOGRAPHER?
Virtual Job Shadow
Virtual Job Shadow is a website that, among other things, offers professionally-produced job shadowing and career advice videos for students to see a "day in the life of" various professions. They followed me around for three days on one of my choreography projects. If you're interested in learning a little more about the behind-the-scenes of what I do, check it out!
SOCIAL IMPACT PROJECT
password to view is: Art
This is a performance that expresses the relationship between Parkinson's Disease and the human body using dance, spoken word, music and motion graphics as the vehicle for expression.
This was originally a live performance for the "Shake it til we Make It" Gala hosted by the Brian Grant Foundation, but it received such a powerful and positive response that the director (who is also a filmmaker) decided to turn it into a film as well.
“Adopted” for The Slants
This was an on-the-spot collaboration with the Creative Director for the video. There were some moments that we worked out specific timing and choreography but mostly it was improvised. At one point we hoisted the videographer up in a harness as he wanted a new angle!
CORPORATE FLASH MOB
This one was a small feat! The Audigy Group team in Portland called me in to choreograph a flash mob for an annual audiology conference in Las Vegas. I taught the local team in person, then made a video for them to distribute through their internal communications network for employees across the country to learn. They surprised the other groups attending the conference with this fun dance!
CORPORATE OFFICE PARTY
In one short rehearsal we pulled together this little jam for the management of Ticor Title to perform for their employees at an office Halloween party. Management had a blast learning the movement (none had any formal dance training) and employees got a kick out of seeing their bosses bust a move!
Music selection and costuming by Ticor Management
Music video for the band One from Many. Featuring dancers with AWOL Dance Collective.
This was a collaboration with the Creative Director for the video.
Part of RIPFest #6, this short film is a musical-within-a-musical-within-a-musical, in a style that sits somewhere between Jesus Christ Superstar and South Park. Tongue-in-cheek film noir meets epic pop in this dizzying piece with hilarious performances by Jimmy Bennett, Nanci Anderson and Dana Snyder. Book and lyrics by Matt Prager, Music by Deborah N. Hurwitz, Directed by Sean Mewshaw, Choreographed by Kitty McNamee.
