Emily Crofford MFA Thesis Concert

This dance concert is the culminating work of Dance MFA candidate Emily Crofford and features her original choreography. Designed to blur the lines between the performance and viewing space, the choreographic intent of the piece is to immerse the audience into the work allowing for an intimate and unique experience for all involved.

Emily Crofford (Massillon, OH), a born fidgetier, an athlete by design, and a dancer through intuition, is an investigative artist and educator interested in exploring the intimate connection dance offers both performers and viewers. Emily has taught contemporary dance technique, dance appreciation, conditioning, yoga, and creative movement to a vast spectrum of students across several states. Additionally, her research involves integrating somatic and conditioning practices seamlessly into dancers’ training. Her choreography was featured at several Cleveland Dance Showcases and American College Dance Association conferences. Emily has worked with numerous choreographers, including performing as part of the Corciano Festival, 53′ Agosto Corcianese, in Corciano, Italy. She is pursuing her MFA in Dance with a concentration in choreography from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro and received her BFA in Dance Education, education minor from Kent State University.
