Welcome to East Side Dance Academy

About the Director


Emily Taylor

Emily opened East Side Dance Academy in 2010. She received her Dance Degree from the University of Utah in 2007. Between 2007-2010 Emily danced professionally for many different companies and taught dance classes throughout Salt Lake City. She also judged Dance Competitions throughout the western U.S. 2007-2015. 

In high school Emily was a member and a co-captain of the State and National winning Hillcrest Drill team. One of her favorite things is helping her students gain the knowledge and confidence they need to successfully audition for their high school teams, whatever path that may be. 

On a personal note Emily has 6 of her own children! 3 of which are dancers at the studio. 

Emily feels she is living her dream as a dance teacher and would love for your children to be apart of our studio!
