Emily Crockford first started dancing at the age of 2, her training began at Talent Co where she took classes in every style. She danced in various competitions including championships in Queensland and Singapore. Once Emily decided to take her dancing more seriously she started training at Vanguard performing Arts in 2019 under close guidance from Daniella Papa and also completed her Certificate 4 in Commercial dance at APAN Academy in 2020.
Emily started teaching in 2020 Vanguard as an assistant to Dani Papa, during this time Dani taught her all she needed to know about teaching and since then has been a loved staff member at Vanguard while still continuing her training at a professional level. Emily also teaches various open classes around Perth and also teaches at St Brigid’s College.
While Studding at APAN, Emily was lucky enough to be cast in the HAMA Productions ‘Wizard of Oz’ in 2019 and ‘High School Musical On Stage’ in 2020. Being apart of these shows made Emily realise she really enjoyed Musical theatre, so in 2021 Emily auditioned for HAMA Productions ‘Legally blonde’ at the Crown Theatre and was successful! Other musicals she has been successfully cast in are; HAMA Productions ‘Christmas Spectacular’ at Crown, ’the Wizard of Oz’ at Crown and ‘Fame The Musical’ at Crown.
Some of Emilys other performance credits include; the AFL Grand Final 2021 performing with Baker Boy, the 40 Under 40 Business awards, RISE Business awards, Phill Walleystack Music video for “Shake-a-leg”, SSN Grand Final Half time performance, Crown Metropol Lobby Christmas show, HAMA Productions ‘A Night to Remember’ Olivia Newton-John tribute show (danced and choreographed) and is looking forward to HAMA Productions ‘Katy Berry Show’
Emily is grateful and excited to start her journey at K2!
