Who is Emelyn Yniguez? Meet the 14-year-old dancer representing Las Vegas 

Born and raised in Las Vegas, the 14-year-old girl started dancing at the age of 6 and instantly fell in love with it. She is a petite naturally gifted prodigy dancer and online content creator who made a name for herself through her extraordinary talent. The young girl is a member of an elite dance group called Prodigy Dance Crew and is currently signed with Bloc LA Talent Agency.

She has been a part of several live and stage performances such as NBA Summer League, WNBA Las Vegas Aces 2019, Miss Silver State Pageant 2019, Strawberry Festival 2019, and NBA Summer League 2018. Apart from that, she has featured in commercials for Walt Disney.


Emelyn has also made appearances in music videos for Snoop Dogg, Blink 182, and Yo Gotti. The young dancer excels in dance forms like tap dancing, salsa, contemporary, and many more.

She also loves doing gymnastics, hula hoop, vlogging, fishing, rollerblading, and ice skating in her free time.

Emelyn’s dance buddy on ‘Come Dance with Me’ will be her mother Nicole Yniguez, who is the founder of the group ‘411 Mommas’ which serves as a platform for a diverse group of mothers to share their ideas, parenting styles, and experiences. The primary goal of the group is to “help, inspire, and support” other parents.


Nicole has been a YouTuber for more than a decade now and runs the channel named ‘MommyTips by Nicole’. The channel has more than 31,000 subscribers and covers several topics such as health, fitness, fashion, beauty, tutorials, and reviews. She has five kids and Emelyn is the oldest of them.

Emelyn wanted her mother to be her partner and Nicole left her day job to participate in the show. In a recent interview, Nicole shared that she has found “new respect” for all the dancers out there after doing the series. The pair also revealed that the show has been an amazing experience for them and made them even closer.

It’ll be interesting to see how amazing this team will do on the CBS reality competition series. We can’t wait for the mother-daughter duo set the stage on fire.

‘Come Dance with Me’ will be premiering exclusively on CBS on Friday, April 15, at 8 pm EST.
