Emily Cooper has worked in Community Arts for over 16 years. She brings genuinewarmth, inclusivity and creativity to her work as a dance teacher and a drum teacher inmental health, school, corporate and community settings. She has studied extensivelyin New York and Africa andperformed and toured in numerous cross-cultural works, as well as directing productionsfor theatres and festivals. In her local Blue Mountains community, Emily is known for her joyful, nourishingcommunity drum and dance classes involving a wonderfully diverse range of ages andabilities. In her classes, all bodies can dance.
In our Empowered Conversation, we explore how Emily followed her internal pulse from classical ballet to African dancing and drumming, leading her to deep and meaningful work especially with those who are suffering. Her commitment to being kind and becoming one with those she is with through her teaching and just being who she is, opens up a window of opportunity for others to reclaim their wholesomeness. There is something incredibly powerful in what Emily instills through her work, and it’s about remembering to come back to ourselves through our bodies.
