Emily Braun

Instructor

Emily grew up in Houston and at a very early age began performing for herself in front of any available mirror. Starting as a young child, Emily studied multiple forms of dance and competed successfully in numerous competitions. She soon learned that she had an affinity for many different avenues of performance, so she dedicated herself to theatre throughout her adolescence. She studied musical theatre and dance at the University of North Texas, and as a young adult moved to New York City and performed as a dancer and actress in off-Broadway shows.

Lead by a calling to go back to school and pursue a completely different path in life, Emily left NYC and received a BA in Women’s and Gender Studies from The University of Texas at Austin. Emily is grateful to have trained and worked with the Pregnancy and Postpartum Health Alliance of Texas where she became a Postpartum Doula and began providing support to babies and their families. While living in Austin she became certified as a babywearing dance teacher, a decision that beautifully blends her love of dance with her passion to provide support and relief to families.
