Emma Bradley, a recent West Springfield High School graduate, alum of Buffa's Dance Studio in Burke, and a former NRG Prodigy for the NRG Dance Project during her senior year of high school, received four dance scholarships for college.

Past performance experience/work includes Capezio 125th Anniversary Gala at City Center in New York City, Dizzy Feet Foundation Gala at Dorothy Chandler Pavilion in Los Angeles where she worked with Mandy Moore and Nick Lazzarini; Bright Lights Shining Stars Gala at Skirball Center in New York City, choreographed by Andy Pellick; and Cedar Lake Contemporary Ballet 360 Installation 2013, directed by Alexandra Damiani.

During her time in the competition circuit, she was highly recognized and awarded scholarships throughout the United States and Europe. In 2012, Dance Spirit Magazine named her one of the top 15 competition dancers to watch. She was also featured in the NRG/MSA YouTube Video Dance Project.

After graduation, Emma decided to pursue her passion for dance and joined the NRG Dance Project as their first ever faculty apprentice in July. Emma spent the summer teaching class with NRG at various dance studios around the country, from Florida to Iowa to Georgia.

Emma is currently in Australia with NRG for three weeks teaching in Melbourne, Perth and Sydney.

This coming year she will be busy teaching in 13 cities around the country, continuing to dance, travel and share her love of dance.
