Posted by Trista on Aug 12, 2021


Tremaine Dancer of the Year Emy Urdahl

When it comes to photoshoots, it's hard not to be in awe of our models - their flexibility, technique, and artistry never fails to impress us!  But we were a little thunderstruck last year when we heard that on of our models, Emy Urdahl was selected as Tremaine's 2021 Senior Dancer of the Year! 

Emy just finished her senior year at Dance Arts Centre in Chanhassen, Minnesota, accomplished studio in our back yard that holds a special place in our hearts (it's home for our Choreographers, Pam and Mollie). We've been lucky enough to work with her for a few years.  She came to us through a model call audition, and actually started her first shoot with us as a last minute replacement - how lucky for us! 

We chatted with Emy about her experience this year in the convention world, and what her plans are for the future.  Check out the Q & A below!
