Emily Hildebrand

Ballet, Pointe

Before establishing her accomplished performing career, Emily Hildebrand earned scholarships to attend multiple national and international academic centers. While a student, she had the opportunity to perform with the New York City Ballet, guided by the legendary George Balanchine. With a professional dance career that stretches over a quarter-century, Emily has performed in companies across the East Coast and the Southern U.S.

In the middle of her career, Emily earned her teaching certification from the School of the Hartford Ballet from what was then the only Vaganova-accredited institution outside of the USSR.

Since receiving her accreditation, she has worked as performer, choreographer, and instructor with several art organizations and has freelanced as dance auditor for New York State Council on the Arts.

Emily joined the SBC faculty in 2019 and we are pleased and proud that she is a part of the SBC family, sharing her talent and passion with our students.


What people are saying about us…

Once again I was smiling deep inside witnessing the Love of Dance emanating from the stage from the littlest ballerina to the oldest dancers.  It is truly evident, the love shared within your dance family.  The respect teacher to student allows for deep respect back, student to teacher, in a time when such things are rare to see.

My thanks for your efforts and integrity, and that of your Clan of teachers.  Quite the tribe you have.  So glad Robin is part of it.
