Emma Watkins


Dancer and filmmaker Emma Watkins began her performance career early from the age of 3, nurturing her love of dance and movement, performing ballet, Irish, hip-hop, tap and contemporary dance. After dancing in productions around Australia, France, India, Canada, China and New Zealand, Emma joined Australian children’s entertainment group, The Wiggles from 2013 – 2021.  

Emma is currently reimagining children’s entertainment with her new character, Emma Memma, by empowering the next generation through movement, creativity, inclusiveness and friendship.  

Emma Memma, with her love of dance, sign language and music, brings visual communication to the forefront of the children’s media space.  

Emma’s passion for movement and body expression expanded to an interest in sign language and raising awareness of Australia’s Deaf community since she was young. Ever since, Emma pursued studying sign language, completing her Diploma of Auslan (Australian Sign Language) and currently studying a Diploma in Interpreting at Deaf Connect and her PhD at Macquarie University in Sydney, focusing on the affective, artistic integrations of sign language, dance and film editing. 

On her experiences with endometriosis and Endometriosis Australia, Emma has said: “Endometriosis is such a debilitating and painful disease and I urge anyone suffering with the symptoms of endometriosis to put your health first and get a diagnosis so that you are in the best position to manage this crippling disease. Endometriosis Australia is such a valuable source of information for women experiencing symptoms of endometriosis and I am proud to be an Endometriosis Australia Ambassador to help raise awareness about this insidious disease.”
