Emily Sese, Adjunct Faculty

Emily Sese began dancing at the age of five in her hometown of Clarkston, Michigan. After high school, she decided to pursue a career in dance and enrolled at Marygrove College in Detroit as a double major in Dance and English. Sese transferred to Oakland University in Rochester, MI and graduated with a B.A. in English and a B.A. in dance in April, 2014. Following graduation, she continued to engage in her passion for dance by submitting her work to festivals such as the Detroit Dance Race and also working as the Company Manager for the Michigan dance company Take Root. She began her graduate education at Texas Woman’s University in 2015, where she learned to merge her love of writing and research with her interest in movement. Specializing in the relationship between text and dance, her thesis “Finding Multiplicity in Dance and Spoken Word: An Analysis of Works by Kidd Pivot, Cynthia Ling Lee, and Bill T. Jones,” was approved in 2017 and resulted in her graduation from TWU with an M.A. in Dance. Over the years, she has studied under artists such as Kevin Iega Jeff, Alexandra Beller, Ting-Ting Chang, Amii Legendre, and Darrell Jones. Currently, Sese is a dance critic for TheaterJones. She continues to share her love of dance with others as an adjunct instructor in the dance department at Tarrant County College, Richland College, and Collin College.
