EMMA LOUISE STANSALL
Emma-Louise, originally from Southampton, pulls choreography from an elemental place: water-like and experimental. Regardless of the style, Emma often plays with the vision of a broken doll, chic yet vulnerable, ethereal yet grounded. Floor work is inevitable.
An artist at heart, Emma’s singing capabilities allow a somewhat refined and artistic musical structure to her performance and choreographic intentions. Never aims to fit in, always eludes from the norm and strives to showcase the real you.
Gilly’s passion for dance and performance started from a very young age when he saw Ozone and Turbo popping and locking in the film Breaking, as well as idolising the red velvet tour for Janet Jackson. With a passion for many styles, he is widely versatile in his natural movement and with this his versatility comes into its own and exudes into his choreography, having the ability to blend effortlessly between movements stylistically.
His career reflects this: directing and choreographing for multiple music artists and large performances.
