Crystal Fleur Dance Festival Emily Rose Greenwood

Emily Rose started out training as a dancer and acrobat, specialising in ballet, jazz and modern classical styles. Emily trained at Doreen Bird College and graduated in 2010 with a National Diploma in Professional Dance and Musical Theatre and then went onto to graduate from Middlesex University with a BA Hons in Professional Practise (Dance) whilst performing and working abroad as a dancer, singer and acrobat. A few years after graduating Emily came across fire dance and manipulation including poi spinning and has since then branched out into more and more circus genres and performances including more and more poi spinning. Emily took workshops and classes in poi spinning whilst also practising in her own time, working on specific moves and adding them together to create sequences. Combining her dance ability with her spinning and manipulation skills she creates unique and interesting performances and acts. Emily now spins fire, glow and ribbon poi for her performances, solo, duo and group, throughout the UK and internationally and she teaches a variety of circus skills in workshops for both children and adults.
