Subsequently, Emma trained at the Royal Ballet School and Australian Ballet School.
In 1997 she joined Béjart Ballet Lausanne where she danced some of Béjart’s great female roles. Emma then danced with The Royal Ballet, Scottish Ballet and West Australian Ballet which she left in 2009 to start her own dance company, Ludwig, in Perth Australia. With Ludwig, Emma created many short and full length dance works including for So You Think You Can Dance Australia.

Whoever coined the phrase 'good things come in small packages' would no doubt be more adamant than ever after watching Chanel Cahill on-stage. The petite Perth born dancer has an effortless knack for movement that makes you prone to wondering if talent really is predestined after all. The true reason for her current success though (whilst less prosaic), is a combination of practice, passion, and sheer perseverance that's been present since she was just three years old. Good work ethic and the usual dose of blood, sweat and tears are nothing new for dancers, but what makes Chanel somewhat of a rarity is her seemingly impartial command over so many diverse genres of dance. It's not often you meet someone who can transfix audiences in pointe shoes, and just as easily transition into urban or jazz with all the requisite panache, and then some.
2017 proved to be a pivotal year for Chanel when she was selected to join Marko Panzic's groundbreaking Dream Dance Company for their third exhilarating season, Enter the Vortex, giving her the chance to show local and international audiences the full scope of her abilities as both artist and performer. If you haven't had the pleasure of catching Chanel on-stage yet, we're confident you'll only be seeing more and more of this fresh new talent.
