About this pro

My name is Emily Bishop.

My main service: Dance

I began training in ballet, contemporary, and jazz at the age of 3, and have traveled to compete and win in numerous dance competitions.  I am currently the director of Evolución Latina Destin, a branch of a dance company which focuses on salsa and bachata dancing. I have choreographed and performed for numerous theatrical performances and dance team performances. I also co-lead the Pura Sabrosura Salsa Dance team at the University of West Florida. 

My goal is to help students become independent and free in their dance. I primarily teach the fundamentals of Salsa and Bachata. This includes partnerwork and individual Latin body movement. Students learn about gaining confidence in themselves- they learn how to connect and express. 

Secondary Services: Art, theatre and performance arts, humanities, holistic wellness. 

I have a B.A. in Psychology with a minor in Studio Art and Social Welfare. I began performing at the age of 5. I have worked as a principle actress, artistic director, choreographer, and director of artistic groups.

I am on Instagram and Facebook as Flosimpar.Art

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I first ask the student what their goals are- and discuss with them how we will meet those goals. 

I then assess their skill level and familiarity with the dance, and tailor my teaching methods to fit their learning style. 

Finally, I let the student know that I want them to have fun and that this is a judgement free zone.

I began training in Jazz, contemporary, and Ballet at the age of three. 

I have traveled on a dance team, competing and winning with them.
