EMILY MILAM KENT graduated Magna Cum Laude, earning a BSEd in Dance Education from the University of Georgia. Soon after, she began collaborating with Pilobolus. Emily toured with Pilobolus Too, a duet configuration of Pilobolus, and has been photographed for company calendars and books including Pilobolus The Human Alphabet and Twisted Yoga. Emily has choreographed and performed for corporate events and commercial performances such as Proctor and Gamble’s National Product Launch in New York, Europe’s IFA convention, and the 79th Annual Academy Awards. She has created original works for high school and university dance companies for Pilobolus and as an individual artist. She has set classic Pilobolus repertoire on high school and university students; she and her partner Matt Kent, were the first to have the process notated by a Laban Notator. Emily now works as the company’s Education and Community Engagement Manager. She spends her days teaching and training teachers to bring Pilobolus’s ideals of collaboration and improvisation to young and old.
