Emma de Macedo
Dance Academy Director
TASIS Portugal is pleased to announce the new lead for the Dance Academy, Emma Nilsson de Macedo, who has over 20 years of experience leading both school and club programs of the highest quality in Portugal.
Emma graduated from The Ballet Academy of Sweden, which opened the doors to a two-decade professional career in dance, musical theatre, and television, as a dancer and choreographer. Emma’s great passion for teaching and working with children led her to found the Cascais Dance Academy in 1999. CDA has since grown to include members ranging in age from 3 to teenage, and has achieved success at national and international competitions, including many TASIS students. Recently, her dancers won the best dance school award among the 40 participating schools in a national competition.
We are confident that Emma and her professional team will expand our program in size and scope, with plans to offer classical ballet, modern jazz, contemporary, and hip-hop beginning at age 3. We look forward to introducing her to those who are not yet familiar with her work.
