Emerick began training at the age of 12 with a focus in Latin ballroom, Salsa and Bachata, and Ballet. At 17 he decided to change his focus and began to concentrate on more technical and competitive training. He began training at Focal Point Dance Studio, where he competed in ballet, hip hop and contemporary. After graduating from high school he began working with commercial choreographers such as Amanda Tae, Liz Imperio and Kevin Maher as well as artists like Ryan McNamara and Becky G.
