Emma Marlar, originally from Kenosha, WI, resides in the Minneapolis area, balancing a career in the performance, creation, and technical aspects of dance. Since graduating from the University of Minnesota – Twin Cities with a BFA in Dance in 2016, she has made space and taken on work that allows her to support others, spark conversation, create collaboratively, and pursue endless explorations in movement. Ananya Dance Theatre continues to fulfill all of this and so much more. Emma has been working with the company since 2014. She feels incredibly thankful for the opportunity to continually witness how this work transforms the dancers, audience, community, and herself.
