Our Programs

NEW: Young Dancers Mentorship

In Partnership with our dance company, eMotion Arts is proud to announce the launch of the Young Dancer Mentorship Program.


This program is geared towards more serious young dancers (ages 10 & Up) that want to experience concert work. While in the program, dancers will be offered coaching in technique, performance, choreography, auditions, and more. Dancers will also have the opportunity to perform alongside the Company and participate in projects as members (photo shoots, video projects, festivals, etc.). 


The goal is to create a space where young dancers can experience a professional environment, while they get mentored to find their style, their Artistic Voice by offering eMotion Arts style multilevel approach to dance training.


For more information on the program and on how to apply, please contact us.

Musicality Training

 Musicality is the art of understanding one's relationship to music; it’s the practical application of musical knowledge.  It is also the element of dance performance that 9 out of 10 professional dancers, directors, choreographers, and adjudicators think is the most important.  Yet musicality is not a part of any major dance curriculum in any institution, worldwide.  Muse offers the solution. 

What is Muse?

Muse was created to bridge the largest gap in dance education by offering the very first curriculum dedicated specifically to musicality.

What Is Musicality?

Musicality is the art of understanding one's relationship to music; it is the practical application of musical knowledge. It is also the element of dance performance that 9 out of 10 professional dancers, directors, choreographers, and adjudicators think is the most important.

Why Muse?

Muse training enables:

  • Better preparedness for class, competition, audition, and performance.
  • Deeper, faster memorization.
  • Cleaner and clearer approach to technique.
  • A more detailed relationship between artistry and expression.
  • The groundwork for seamless collaboration with musicians, composers, and musical directors.

What to Expect in a Muse Seminar

  •  Individual and group attention from both co-founders of the company.
  • A one-of-a-kind approach in which Mario Spinetti will actually sing beside the dancer guiding the dancer through the elements of music, while Mariana Sobral ensures that the dancer's technique is both physically safe and aesthetically sound.
  • Classes are filmed and recorded in HD for potential college, audition, and social media reels.
  • A final performance is offered in which students showcase their work while sharing the stage with featured guest artists.

The Muse Team

Mario Spinetti: Music

A recording artist deeply rooted in all of the Western music traditions, who has specialized in working with dancers for over a decade.  Experience includes work for Mikhail Baryshnikov, with dancers and choreographers from Netherlands Dance Theater, ABT, Alvin Ailey, Parsons, and So You Think You Can Dance.


Mariana Sobral: Technique

A former harpist turned professional dancer who can articulate precisely how every element of musicality can be incorporated into the dancer's vocabulary. Experience as a dancer includes being featured as a Principal Dancer and as a Soloist in many traditional classical and contemporary ballet works (like “Giselle’, “The Sleeping Beauty”, “Coppelia”, “La Bayadere”, and “Who Cares?” among many others), plus a teaching and choreographing career spanning over 20 years.
