More about Emily:
In 1996 Emily Webb began her love affair with partner dance. Through the years Emily has studied Tango, Swing, Salsa, Blues, and Fusion dance with some the top instructors in the world. Today Tango and Fusion remain Emily’s greatest dance loves.

Thousands of students across the US and Canada have benefited from Emily’s dynamic and interactive teaching style. Emily’s adaptability to student needs, knowledge of body mechanics, and specialized drills create high impact learning for students of all levels. Through her years of teaching experience Emily has learned to make even the most complex movements simple and build them from the ground up. This means you will not only look good while you dance, but feel great to your partners too!

Emily has completed multiple teachers trainings in and out of dance, is a certified instructor of Krav Maga (martial art) and has a BS in Equine Science with a specialty in teaching. She has been seen teaching at nationally recognized events such as the Portland Alt Tango Festival, Denver Fusion Exchange , Las Vegas Fusion Exchange, Atomic Fusion Festival, Massive Blues Recess, Seattle Fusion Festival, Mission Fusion Extravaganza, DJX Fusion Weekend, The Fusion Project and more.


Here is what some people have to say about Emily’s workshops:

This was one of the best dance workshops I have been too. Great followers. Great instructors.
Mark Susol, Cupertino, CA

I’ve often felt intimidated by the slow learning curve I experience with tango. Emily’s classes give me enough information to jump in while still developing my technique + proper mechanics. I feel so much more confident in my tango and it’s been a really fun embellishment when I dance fusion.

Emily is very knowledgeable and is able to convey both the leader and follower’s steps. She guides you through each sequence, and allows you to connect with your dance partner naturally. I would take another one of her classes in a heartbeat!

Live Music nights’ price change

Due to necessity, starting 4/19/17, asking price of admission on Live Music nights will be $15, with sliding scale of $10-14 for full-time students. Cost of entry has always been and continues to be subsidized by non-profit Project Tango, but income has not been enough to cover rent and musicians’ pay. The Board has made this difficult decision in order to keep CELLspace & its Live Music program sustainable.  We continue to offer volunteer opportunities for free entry, & regular nights without live music continue at the current subsidized $10 cost. Thank you for your understanding and continued support of this wonderful community!
