Buffalo Jill of The Week Emily

This week, we take a look at now-2nd-year vet Emily as our Buffalo Jill of The Week. During her rookie season, she showed off her dance skills on Eileen's line next to her and Stefanie. There's a lot of girls on the squad who can say they live to dance but for the most part, those are the girls who stick around for several years. After a number of years on the squad, you can really see just how important a part of their lives that dancing really is. Emily, despite finishing up only her rookie season so far, has as much dedication to dancing as anyone else who's ever been on the squad. In fact, had she been born just a few months earlier, she would likely have been on the 2009 squad. But she didn't turn 18 soon enough and wound up being the first rookie dancer we met in 2010 when she posed for a photo at tryouts with Kristen and Nicole. Hopefully, Emily's love of dance keeps her on the squad for several more years but even if she doesn't put in an Omarlla-esque Jills career, she won't be done dancing by any means. She's actually working on her Bachelor's Degree in dance and hoping to land a career in dance. As far as what kind of career she'll be involved in is a decision to be made in a few years but besides her schooling and the Jills, she's also very active in ballet. There is more to Emily than her dance skills and her obvious beauty, though. The Jills held 2 Open Practices last year at which the Jills work with little girls hoping to learn a little from the pros. Part of what the Jills organization expects from the Jills is the ability to do well with the little girls in Open Practices, cheerleading camps, and the Jr Jills program. Emily seemed to stand out at the November Open Practice however, in how she interacted with the youngsters. She has her own baby sister who may one day take after her and she seemed to treat each of the little girls she was working with as if they were her little sisters. Considering how much she loves her baby sister, that's definitely a great thing.

When Emily tried out for the squad last March, she ended up being paired up with returning alumnus Anna and she showed her dance skills in nailing the routine.
