Emily Parker | Company Artist

Joined OBT in 2014

Emily Parker is from Boston, Massachusetts, and has been dancing since age four. She became an OBT apprentice (2014), whose performance in spring 2016’s Beautiful Decay program resulted in promotion to company artist. Her performance highlights include: Nacho Duato’s Jardí Tancat; William Forsythe’s In the Middle, Somewhat Elevated; Jirí Kylián’s Falling Angels — and OBT’s Choreography XX (three world premieres by women) in Portland’s Washington Park Rose Garden. She also earned her Bachelor of Science degree from Indiana University in ballet and biology.
