Emily Rich (Baquet) began her study of dance at age five in Tucson, AZ receiving extensive training in ballet, tap, jazz, pointe, lyrical, contemporary, hip hop, and musical theater. As a major part of Creative Dance Arts’ performing company, Emily performed principle roles in Nutcracker, Swan Lake, Serenade, and Midsummer Night’s Dream. Emily has also had many opportunities to work with top dancers and choreographers across the nation by participating in countless dance competitions and workshops throughout Arizona as well as in Michigan and Mississippi, receiving multiple awards for her dancing and choreography.
After becoming aware of and experiencing the countless benefits of Pilates exercise for both dancers and non-dancers, Emily received her Pilates certification in Tucson, AZ in 2007. Since Emily’s relocation to Seattle, she has been teaching Pilates and dance at many local gyms, schools, and dance studios. She loves teaching and choreographing primarily because she loves people and has a desire to help others express themselves in a healthy way.
Emily is presently studying Nursing and Psychology at Seattle Pacific University with the desire to help hurting individuals through counseling and/or medical treatment by one day becoming a Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner.
While Emily is passionate about dance, she is even more passionate about Jesus and the freedom and joy that is found in Him!
