Emma 'La Rizada' completed the SDS (Spanish Dance Society)  syllabus in 2000.  Determined to pursue the 'real' flamenco she went to live and  study in Jerez de la Frontera at the Centro de Baile .  Not only did she discover this art form, but experienced it in context, as a way of life. 

She has a professional teaching qualification and graduated from East London Dance in 2006 as a qualified Community Dance Practitioner. 

Emma has a wide range of teaching experience.  She has worked in  adult education at London's Bishopsgate Institute, in primary and secondary schools as well as running her own classes in Greenwich .  Emmas gained valuable experience teaching  for the Royal Academy of Dance for 4 years  and prepared her students for a performance at Sadlers Wells Theatre London

Emma continues to return to Spain to train with the leading names in flamenco today.  Teachers that have inspired her are Mercedes Ruiz,  Carmen Ledesma,  Maria Juncal, Adela Campallo and Ana Morales.

Emma is a versatile teacher and aims to make her classes accessible and believes that flamenco has so much to offer and wants to inspire her students with this wonderful art form
