HOUSE Mentorship Program, THE VOID

The House is a community dance studio for serious dancers with like-minded goals. Our unique Mentorship Program, THE VOID, prepares dancers for what to expect as they evolve into the professional dance industry. 

This intensive once-a-week experience takes your dancing to the next level by enhancing your HOUSE training or complementing your existing studio or school training. 

The Void Mentorship Program will be your source to help direct your next steps as a dancer, artist, and individual. This program is designed to educate you in all aspects of the dance industry while providing a strong technical foundation along the way. Technique, Ballet, Jazz, Lyrical, Contemporary, and Hip Hop will be taught by the most sought-after educators in the industry. Unique classes in Pilates, Vocal, Acting, Careers in Dance, Audition Prep, Dance Science, On-Camera Work, and Headshots will also be offered on a weekly basis. Through an emphasis on student choreography, dancers develop their own voices as creators. 

The Void Mentorship Program will be held every Tuesday from 4:30-8:30pm, September 7th, 2021 through May 31st, 2022. 

Tuesdays will start off with a foundational class such as Technique, Ballet, Pilates or Yoga then move into a combination class such as Jazz, Contemporary, Hip Hop, Ballroom, etc. Unlike regular drop-in classes, these combination classes focus deeply on retaining choreography, reversing the combinations, and even exploring the history and possible careers within that dance style. On occasion we will have discussions that focus on college preparation, leadership, well-being, and much more. Every six weeks we will rotate between Acting and Vocal training to end the night. 

This year we will focus on creating personal brands, building physical and virtual resumes, and establishing relationships for long-lasting connections on and off the dance floor. 

Mentees in our previous Mentorship Programs have participated in the filming of a reality t.v. pilot and the upcoming dance movie Keep Moving. Because of their previous acting experience, some of our dancers were cast as leads in the film. These opportunities are not guaranteed every season.

Emily was born and raised in Southern California and competed as a competitive dancer for 12 years. She graduated from The University of Arizona in 2013 with her BFA in Dance and currently lives in Los Angeles dancing for Go 2 Talent Agency (GTA).

When Emily was 16 years old, she began touring with Tremaine Dance Convention as an assistant, traveling all across the United States. To further her studies, she trained in Chicago with River North Dance Company. She has worked with numerous choreographers including, Bryan Tanaka, Dominique Kelley, Ashley Everette, Gustavo Vargas, Mark Meismer, Joe Tremaine, Desiree Robbins, Zach Woodlee (Choreographer from Glee), Spencer Liff (Musical Theatre Choreographer from “So You Think You Can Dance”), Keri LaGrand, Sam Watson, Michael Williams, and Miki Orihara (Martha Graham principle dancer).

Emily was amongst the first girls to tour with Mariah Carey in her All I Want For Christmas Worldwide Tour in 2017. In addition to live performances, she has performed with Seamless Dance Theatre in Kansas City, Missouri, directed by Erin Lustig; and danced in Dee Caspary’s Nvitational in a piece called “In This Shirt”, choreographed by Keri LaGrand, dancing along side Meghan Sanett and Tiffany Maher.

Furthermore, Emily was a stunt double on NBC’s new show “Reverie”, as well as danced in commercials on Disney Channel for a Nintendo N-R-G game, choreographed by Zack Woodlee and featured in a Metrolink Commercial.

Lastly, Emily has had the opportunity to work on green-screen as a pointe dancer for Paintscaping Productions.
