After college, she was invited to dance with Aerial Dance Chicago, where she was a core company member for two years. She then moved to LA in order to train closely with Aerial Experience Productions (AEP) and Arise Aerial Dance. Emmy has performed for the Toshiba International Conference, Midnight Circus, Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago, Hewlett Packard, “Imagine Christmas” Touring Show, “Stories from the Shack” Touring Show, Lockport Exchange Circus, as a featured aerialist in an international LG Washing Machine commercial and at the Irish Aerial Dance Festival. She received her cloud swing training with Tara Ogren, previously of Ringling Brothers. In 2011, Emmy, featuring Iluminar Aerial, was selectively invited to be a part of the Alumni Dance Fusion Show in Plano Texas, highlighting former students that have broken ground in the professional dance world.
