Masterclasses and teaching

Emma’s class is focused on training in Urban/Contemporary. In the first half we will visit technique, improvisation, musicality, stamina and the challenge to search for your own creativity. In the second half of the class Emma will teach repertoire from her projects and pieces. Dancers in class are challenged to function in tasks, musicality, creativity, partnering as well as different aspects of the contemporary and urban dance styles where the individuality and expression is the most important work direction.


Emma is also teaching in screendance, how to create dance for film. It addresses the differences between approach in choreography, the technical aspects of (dance) film making and creative writing and developing. She has been teaching her workshop to multiple academies around Europe, including Codarts Rotterdam, ADDA Barcelona and School of the Arts Amsterdam.

Emma Evelein - Choreographer

Together with Remy Tilburg, Emma won the NDT Partner Award at RIDCC 2021. Emma was invited to shadow the process of Crystal Pite in spring 2022 for her creation Figures in Extinction 1.0, and to learn the material alongside the dancers of NDT1.

Then Remy & Emma taught their repertoire of Fiftyone/Fourtynine to NDT2. The partner period was guided by NDT artistic director Emily Molnar.
