Emma Rose is a Pittsburgh Native where she began her dance training at the early age of three years old. While she primarily trained in tap, ballet and jazz, she found a passion for contemporary, hip hop and heels later in her dance career. She furthered her dance training at Millennium Dance Complex Pittsburgh where she then became a part of the staff. Emma is a graduate from Slippery Rock University with a Bachelor's Degree in Marketing and a Minor in Dance. Upon graduation in 2017, she moved to Cleveland to pursue her professional NBA dance career and was a Cleveland Cavalier Girl for the 2017-2018 season. She had the opportunity to be a backup dancer for Lil Jon & Ludacris, Coolio, Ray Parker Jr., Bel Biv Devoe and Sister Sledge. After the 2018 season came to an end, Emma decided to dream bigger with her NBA dance career and was fortunate enough to make the team for the Chicago Bulls as a Luvabull. During the day Emma is a full-time Marketing Manager and at night she is a full-time Dancer, making the best of both worlds. Apart from her marketing job, dancing and working as a dance cardio instructor for 305 Fitness, Emma spends a lot of her time volunteering for various organizations helping kids with disabilities and cancer. She is also the Creative Director for Always Dancing With Grace which is based out of Pittsburgh, PA. This group is comprised of over 90 dancers ages 5 to 27 that perform as a group and raise money to help the families of children with the pediatric brain cancer DIPG.
