Emmakate Franz

Akhmedova Ballet Academy

Favorite dancewear manufacturer?

I love the quality and comfort of Yumiko and Capezio

Must have item for dance classes?

I always have a spiky ball for rolling out my muscles and Theraband.

What’s in your dance bag?

Besides the usual ballet flats, pointe shoes and nude contemporary shoes. I keep warm ups, snacks and pain relievers in my dance bag.

Favorite style of dance?

Ballet

Recommendation for product?

Biofreeze is a quick pain reliever for those extra long rehearsals.

Do you have any performance/backstage rituals/superstitions?

This is going to sound immensely strange but before I go on stage I try to crack as many things as possible. I start with my neck, then I crack my back, hips and ankles.

Favorite Dancer/Choreographer of all time?

May Nagahisa and Katherine Barkman have an exquisite and detailed way of morphing into the character they are dancing. They are absolutely beautiful to watch.

Interest outside of dance?

I enjoy cooking for my family and reading.
