Ximena Emiliani

Originally from Panama, Ximena began her Dance Studies at Pointe Centro de Danzas training in techniques such as Ballet, Pointe, Pas de Deux, and Jazz. When Ximena was fifteen, she continued her training at Academia de Danzas Steps, where she trained in all the fields previously stated as well as contemporary dance. During her years at both conservatories, she participated in various competitions and festivals and had the opportunity to perform roles such as Black Swan, Pas de Peasant Pas de Deux from Giselle, and Dulcinea from Don Quixote. She was also chosen as Clara and Columbine in The Nutcracker and as Cupid in Don Quixote, the three of them to perform with the National Ballet of Panama. When she was fifteen, she was invited by Valentina Kozlova to perform at her annual Nutcracker performance in NYC when she featured the Columbine once again. Ximena will graduate with a BFA in Dance Performance and a BBA in Management from Southern Methodist University in Spring 2021.
