Emma Kay Richardson


Emma first became hooked on dancing several years ago, after a year of casual salsa lessons. She continued to pursue her interest in dance when she came to study in Cambridge in 2009, joining the Cambridge University Dancesport Team to compete in Ballroom and Latin.

Emma took up salsa and bachata in Cambridge in the summer of 2011, and developed a passion for both styles. She has since immersed herself in the salsa and bachata scene, joining the Bachata Obsesión Dance Team as one of its first members in late 2011.

Emma rapidly fell in love with the sensuality and smooth flow of bachata, and, as her technique and personal style developed, she began teaching classes and choreographing solo couple and group pieces with her regular dance partner, You Yi.

She has recently started competing in bachata as well, spurred on by her enjoyment of competitive ballroom Latin. Together, Emma and You Yi managed to secure the title of UKA Amateur Bachata Champions 2013
