Emma Ridley is a performance artist, with a history in dance, music, film, television, and burlesque. With her many transformations, she has inspired a generation. Emma spent most of her early years being in the spotlight, starting at the tender age of only 8 months advertising as the Gerber baby, as well as appearing in many feature films, including Jackie Collins ‘The World is Full of Married Men’, starring Tony Franciosa and Carol Baker, playing their 4 year old daughter Lucy. Emma played another character called Lucy in the well known ‘Hammer House of Horrors’ film ‘The House That Bled To Death’. Many more film and television projects followed.
Emma joined the Royal Ballet London at age 6, starred as princess ‘Ozma’, the queen of Oz, in Disney’s ‘Return to Oz’, and won rave reviews as Bobbie Mechelle in Neal Simons’ ‘Last of the Red Hot Lovers’ on the British Stage in Repertoire Theater. She also had a role in the American Disney TV show ‘Boy Meets World’, all while spending her very full youth writing, performing, and producing music and music videos.
Emma then decided to “settle down”, out of the spotlight, on a Californian ranch/farm to raise her 3 children (with horses, goats and chickens, oh my!). She has since returned once again to the spotlight as a successful business creator and owner of “Goddess Fitness Dance”, a completely unique self-expressed ballet, yoga and pole dancing approach to fitness!
Emma has now ventured into production and is CEO of her very own TV COMPANY. Partnering up with the new love of her life Micheal Carter of Paradigm Digital and creating TVDANCE.LIVE, a live broadcasting company of all things dance, bringing the best of ballroom dance competition live streamed from across the nation. TVDANCE.LIVE will feature the first ever live streamed, live edited, totally live ‘real’ reality TV burlesque musical comedy-drama “TeaseHouse” (working title). Stay tuned!
