I have been taking classes with Emilie for 2 years now. Before taking her classes I had zero dance training. Her classes are fun, positive and upbeat and a complete safe and nonjudgmental place for a beginner. Emilie is such a gifted teacher and knows how to break down steps to make them easy to learn. She never puts anyone on the spot and respects your comfort level. I have tried other dance classes throughout the city and by far Emilie is the best teacher. Her classes are fun, challenging and really awarding. I find myself always laughing my butt off in her classes because she has a great sense of humour! I highly recommend her classes! ~ Marianna

A dance class with Emilie is unlike any other adult dance class in Ottawa! Not only are the routines both challenging and fun, Emilie's teaching style makes everyone feel comfortable and welcome. I started dancing with Emilie in 2013 as a total beginner and now the end-of-session Dance Shows are a highlight of my year. If you've ever considered trying or returning to dance as an adult I encourage you to check out Emilie's classes. You'll be hooked! ~ Nicole

I absolutely love taking babywearing dance with Emilie, she is an amazing teacher. Her love for music and dance is contagious and she is able to teach the moves for all levels. I really enjoy how Emilie also teaches the background of the different styles of dance we are learning, she really has brought out my love for dance again! ~ Jess
