Emily Romain

Emily is a London-based choreographer for film and theatre. Growing up, Emily trained in ballet, modern, jazz, tap and contemporary dance and regularly competed at national level. Whilst studying Classics at Oxford University, Emily first ventured into choreography, focusing on musical theatre and contemporary dance. From 2012 – 2014 she was the artistic director of Dream Again Dance Company, for whom she conceived and choreographed several full-length dance productions. More recently Emily has choreographed dance videos for artists including Zayn, Kara Marni and Out Of The Blue (Britain’s Got Talent Semi-Finalists), whilst also working in the music industry as an EA and Project Manager. She is now studying her MA in Screendance at London Contemporary Dance School, with the aim to develop her practise as a choreographer for the camera and to increase her technical expertise as a filmmaker and editor. Emily has a particular interest in narrowing the gap between mainstream pop culture and the contemporary dance world and her work engages with both.
