Emily Bendler



Emily is happy to be back in City Island choreographing for Evita. Emily has been seen on this stage earlier as both dancer and co-choreographer in Sweet Charity; she also played Frances in Five Women Wearing the Same Dress. She has danced in various musicals as a backup dancer, and for various sports teams, including the Staten Island Vipers ABA basketball team, the New York Lizards Lacrosse team, and the Brooklyn Kings Rugby Team. Recently she was part of the Super Bowl Halftime Show with Bruno Mars. Emily currently teaches dance at Transcend Dance in Mount Vernon, NY.  Emily would like to thank her wonderful husband and son, who love her despite her crazy schedule! To the cast, break legs! You can do it!
