Emily Kivinen: Assistant Director


Emily’s love of dance has taken her all throughout Canada, and the United Kingdom. Originally from Southern Ontario, she moved to England at age 15 where she fell in love with Street Dance and Hip Hop and learnt from some of the very best in the industry.

Emily has danced on all of London’s most prestigious stages, and had the opportunity to perform as a backup dancer at the Disney Channel Kids Awards, where she danced for over 15,000 fans. At age 16, Emily was selected to be a backup dancer for British pop band Atomic Kitten.

Emily began teaching dance at age 17, and after finishing her post secondary education in Ontario has been able to share her love of dance all over Canada. Now in BC, she is happy to have found her home at Langley Dance Academy.

Emily lives in the Fraser Valley with her husband and two young daughters, where living room dance parties and performances are highly encouraged.
