Emily is from Cincinnati, OH and has been dancing for thirteen years. She received her B.A. in Dance from Washington University in St. Louis in 2018 and has choreographed for a variety of dance productions. Her works explore abstract phenomena through the intimacy of a human perspective using balletic, contemporary and improvisational vocabularies.

Sophia lived most of her life in Virginia and became serious about ballet around age seven. She danced with Loudoun School of Ballet, Ballet Nova, and Skye Ballet Center. As an introvert, she loves how dance can be a form of intimate communication, allowing her to connect with others without verbal interaction. Sophia is super excited about being a part of fine lines between for many reasons, but specifically for the chance to look at social interaction and the opportunity to work with peers in a safe environment where the focus is the creation of art.

Sydney started dancing at 5 years old at her hometown ballet studio in Ohio. She joined their ballet company at 12 years old. During her high school summers, Sydney attended summer programs at Kansas City Ballet and Nashville Ballet. The summer before her senior year, she was offered a traineeship at Nashville ballet and has been dancing there ever since. 

Dancing inspires her as a way to express emotion and artistry through the beautiful instrument that is the body. To her, there is nothing more freeing than dancing. Sydney is so excited to be a part of fine lines between and show audiences just how freeing this experience can be.
