THE STORY:

Earl Mosley Institute of the Arts (EMIA) is an amazing organization that has guided so many dancers along their path... myself included.

2015 is EMIA's 10th Year Anniversary! In 2008, I came to EMIA on a full scholarship and over 85% of students were on some sort of scholarship. My goal is to raise $3400, which is the full four week tuition. To give one dancer the opportunity I had...


WHAT EMIA MEANS TO ME:
I want to express my deepest gratitude to Earl Mosley, Steffen Coleman

When I first moved to NYC, I wasn’t sure where I fit. On the first day of class at The Ailey School in the Fall 2006, I had Horton with Mosley. In the middle of class he had me demonstrate an across the floor phrase by myself. He didn’t pick on me because I did it perfectly. He wanted to give me a personal correction. I was beyond intimidated, but I grew so much in that moment... And since that moment, he has continued to provide me with many other opportunities to grow as an artist.

EMIA was the jumping-off point for my career in lots of ways. I was offered my first dance company contract with a choreographer I met at EMIA. My first J CHEN PROJECT choreography piece was first showcased at EMIA’s student choreography series. And some of my closest collaborators (dancers, photographers and costume designers) are all friends I met at EMIA.

EMIA has given me a community and a safe space to develop myself. Thank you again Mosley for what you’ve done and what you continue to do for me and so many other aspiring dancers...
