Joyce Emilie Raleigh

Emilie is a performing and teaching artist in Durham, North Carolina. In the two years since graduating from UNC at Greensboro, she has been teaching at Sandy Ridge Elementary School. She has a wide range of experiences, including costuming for the American Dance Festival and performing at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. After moving to Durham in 2016, she has strived to become involved in the local dance scene as much as possible, which brought her to ShaLeigh Dance Works in the Summer of 2018.  Emilie aims to inspire her fellow dancers to treat every moment as temporary.
