About Emily Kirchhoff

Emily grew up in Oconomowoc, Wisconsin where she started training as a competitive gymnast. She began dancing around the age of 8, when she discovered her passion for dance. Emily is currently a Senior At Indiana University pursuing a B.F.A. in Contemporary Dance, along with a minor in Exercise Science.

Beyond her dance training, Emily is a certified yoga instructor and enjoys teaching and practicing yoga in her free time. She is always looking for ways to intersect her yoga practice with her dance training and is also interested in anatomy and injury prevention. Emily plans to finish her degree and graduate this spring, aspiring to further develop herself as an artist.
