Emma Alley is a movement artist living in Los Angeles. Her creative life explores the language of the body, which spills out in movement, gesture, words, experimental performance, and facilitation. 


She engages with other artists interested in making work that is playful, direct, potent, and vulnerable. 


She is currently expanding her creative toolbox, exploring new mediums such as clowning, spoken word, and dance for film.

Emma is in the process of becoming a certified mindfulness meditation instructor with the Awareness Training Institute and the Greater Good Science Center at UC Berkeley. She integrates the principles of mindfulness into her offerings, creating brave spaces that invite vulnerability and deep connectedness.

In the past, she spearheaded The Limb Parade Performance Collective, a group of dancers and artists in Auckland, New Zealand. They shared a piece, After, in the 2020 Auckland Fringe Festival, which was recognized with the Whakawhirinaki award, the festival's highest honor. They were given fiscal support and offered continued mentorship from Auckland Fringe.



Before that, she presented a series of experimental solos in Atlanta, Georgia, as well as danced professionally with companies such as Staibdance, Sky Creature Productions, and Emily Cargill and Dancers. In 2017, she was a resident artist at the Work Room, a rehearsal studio for contemporary dance. 



She received her BFA in dance from Florida State University in 2014, and her 200 hour yoga teacher certification from Sacred Thread Yoga in 2015.
