I’m Emily Fox, and I am passionate about helping individuals and couples of all kinds discover their enjoyment of dance. For over a decade I've taught social dance to people of all ages and abilities at venues in Western MA, including Paradise Dance, Dance Northampton, Greenfield Community College, the Hartsbrook School, and at my studio in Florence, MA. Humor and patience are my hallmarks, and I specialize in working with people with limited dance experience.

In my dance and martial arts studies I’ve been fortunate to have excellent instructors who have taught me how important it is to have a kind, caring, and knowledgeable teacher. I strive to emulate them in every lesson. Having worked in adult education, I incorporate techniques designed to reach students in many ways, including demonstrating steps, dancing with students, verbal cueing, giving tactile feedback, and providing written handouts. I have observed my students not only develop their ability to dance, but also gain pride and confidence in learning a new skill that connects them with family, friends, and the larger dance community.
