Emily DiMaggio grew up in Fairfax Station, VA where she began her dance training at the age of three at a competition studio. She later went on to continue her dance education under the direction of Melissa Dobbs at a performing arts dance studio called Metropolitan Fine Arts Center, now known as Metropolitan School of the Arts, where she studied multiple styles of dance, acting, and singing.
Upon graduating from high school, she was offered the Promising Young Artist Scholarship to the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, PA where she pursued a BFA in dance. There, she was fortunate to study under several accomplished choreographers from around the country. In addition, she was the 2016 recipient of the Elizabeth Ann Pulaski Scholarship as a rising senior for her dance and academic performance. She earned a spot on the Dean’s List every semester and graduated with honors in May of 2017. Shortly after she graduated, Emily was signed to I.T.S. Model and Talent Management. Additionally, she joined a D.C. based contemporary dance company, Motion X Dance D.C., under the direction of Stephanie Dorrycott for one year.
Emily has attended intensive programs and taken several classes in New York and Los Angeles, including the Broadway Dance Center’s Professional Semester in 2014 and Millennium Dance Complex in 2016, in which she was lucky enough to take from and build personal relationships with well-known teachers and choreographers. She also assisted Dee Caspery at the Pulse on Tour Nationals in New York City. She has performed in numerous local musicals and dance productions in Northern Virginia and Philadelphia.
Emily currently teaches multiple disciplines of dance at Metropolitan School of the Arts, including jazz, contemporary, hip-hop, tap, and early childhood. Emily also is an assistant director for MSA’s holiday show, Santa’s Spectacular, formerly known as Santa’s Frosty Follies. She has choreographed dances for large ensembles and pre-professional companies at MSA, as well as solos for students seeking to gain admission to performing arts programs at prestigious colleges and universities. Additionally, Emily’s choreography has been used successfully by students looking to get into rigorous dance intensives and conservatory programs, and in competitions for scholarships and cash awards. Emily feels very fortunate to share her passion with young aspiring artists, and works to be a positive influence on the overall growth and development of her students.
