Emma Manion, SF

Emma hails from the Vermont mountains with over two decades of experience training, performing, choreographing and teaching dance of assorted styles. She moved to San Francisco in 2006, with a B.A. in Dance from Bennington, and instantly took to ODC. She's been teaching Rhythm and Motion classes since 2011. Drawing from her work as an NASM Personal Trainer, Emma illustrates the joy in moving powerfully with mindful body awareness. In both her instruction and personal productions, she aims to match creative playfulness with attention to technique and stylized details. Her R&M classes are known to be soulful – often in a nostalgic for the ’90s sort of way!
