My name is Emma Gauthier, I’m 15 years old and I am a Dance by aKaiserPhoto Ambassador. I was a member for Mike and Brittany last year, which was a great opportunity and I suggest any dancer who’s interested to apply for either program.
My parents made the decision of putting me in dance at the age of 6 just for fun and it began to be my biggest love ever since. I joined the competitive dance team after doing one year of recreational dance at Spotlight Dance Company. I have learned so much at the studio, not just dance but discipline, great social skills, determination and much more. I help assist at the dance studio also.
I have been competing for 9 years. In 2018, my first ever solo, on the aerial hammock, I won the national novice title at Shine Dance Competitions. I was certainly the happiest, most excited 10-year-old. Even now, I still compete in the aerial arts categories. Overall, this year has been the best year in my books. Losing two years due to Covid wasn’t awesome, but it made me realize how much I really appreciate dance and doing these photoshoots with an amazing photography team.
