Emma Lewis


Trained at the Arts Educational School, London and then the Royal Ballet School, London Emma begins her professional dance career as a classical ballet dancer first in Zaragoza, Spain and then in Florence, Italy before discovering contemporary dance. She then leaves classical ballet to devote herself to training in the Graham and Cunningham techniques at the London Contemporary Dance School after which she works with Mark Baldwin briefly before joining Cullberg Ballet in Sweden where she stays for over 8 years.

Emma had the honour of dancing many celebrated works by Mats Ek as well as other renowned choreographers such as Carolyn Carlson, Ohad Naharin, Jiri Kylian, Johan Inger and Philippe Blanchard.

After the birth of her second daughter Emma moved to France thinking to hang up her dancing shoes but it proved not to be! Instead she has since worked with choreographers Joelle Bouvier, Kader Belarbi and most notably Eric Oberdorff of La Compagnie Humaine in Nice with whom she has created many works over the last 10 years and continues to collaborate with to this day.

Emma is also a certified teacher in the classical and contemporary dance techniques as well as the Alan Herdman Pilates method since 15 years.
