Emily Couts

Competitive Dancer Spotlight

Emily is 18 years old and has been dancing at PADC for more than 14 years. She has taken classes in tap, ballet, lyrical and jazz. She competed on Teen Company. Emily's favorite thing about competition is getting to watch everyone on stage.

Emily's favorite classes are ballet and lyrical, and her favorite song to dance to is anything with a beat! Her favorite moves to do in dance class are tap combinations....flying shuffles and four count pull backs. She plans to become a genetic counselor.

An interesting fact about Emily is that she was on one of the first competition teams established at PADC!

Emily just completed her senior year at Hayes High School. We have loved watching Emily grow at PADC, and we wish her all the best as she starts her next adventure!

Congratulations, Emily!
