Emma Simon

New York: Battery Park - Pier 25, New York: Central Park

KIDS: No children, but a group of about 27 theater students who have become my "kids."

PASSION: I love to teach and share things that I love with others. Specifically, teaching theater arts to my middle school and high school students. Seeing them become full, unapologetic versions of themselves has been so inspiring. 

JOB: Professional actor and singer based in NYC. Also a certified yoga instructor teaching at various studios in Manhattan.

FAVORITE SPORT: Soccer! I grew up playing and love to watch it. (big fan of the German national team...)

SPORT GOALS: Build up my endurance for long distance running again. I ran the NYC Half two years ago and have been on a hiatus since then. Oh... and MASTER the burpee!

GUILTY PLEASURE: Chocolate covered espresso beans and reruns of Grey's Anatomy.
