..."Australian-born Angelina Joy Emanuele belts out original, high energy, radio friendly pop music in the vein of Spice girls, Madonna and Paula Abdul. Her songs are well above average with "SINGLE GIRL" being the most noable. Her noteworthy vocal abilities are well above the norm of many of the pop divas out there. She is a unique, charismatic and spirited entertainer who gives it all she has. She’ll have you shaking your booty in no time. And what she has to offer is high –energy dancing, charismatic stage presence and good dance pop tunes backed by solid vocals" Tom Farrell MUSIC CONNECTION 1998

.."It’s Tuesday and there wasn’t much going on, so I decided to check out this show at the Martini Lounge. Upon my arrival I was treated to performance by a creamy thighed sex bomb. This somewhat Madonnaish vocalist gave a strong sensual performance...

With just back up tapes she had no choice but to shine... and believe it or not she was great! She even did costume changes on stage in between songs. There is great potential here for stardom for this girl. She just need s a break!"

Al Bowman ROCK CITY NEWS 1998

She was teaching at professional dance schools in Australia such as Bartuccio’s and The Dance Factory. She is now taking her music and dance experience to the kids of Los Angeles via her dance program "The Joy of Dance",  giving the kids the chance to dream, follow their hearts and dance." A labor of love she feels driven to do and is all part of her "big picture" of combining dance, music, the arts, the pop world and the commercial business world together in a positive and productive way".

THE JOY HOUSE is a new interactive multi - media TV Show and school program created and designed for kids of all ages ranging from 2 to 12 years. Joy and The Joy House is on a mission to bring the innocense back to kids in Los Angeles and the world. Something that is lacking so desparately these days in music, the arts, the quality of children's television programming and entertainment and after school activities.

THE JOY HOUSE aired weekly for rwo whole seasons on The Los Angeles Creative Learning Channel - LA Channel 36. There is nothing like it on TV. The response she has been getting is...........


She has done all this alone without any funding or help. She knows it is just a matter of time until someone or the right company, is going to see it is time for something like this for kids. Her vision for kids is already becoming a reality.

THE JOY HOUSE is also being taught as an after school program at elementary schools and pre - schools around Los Angeles and The City of Santa Monica. This unique idea was created through teaching dance at pre - schools and elementary schools throughout Los Angeles by the multi talented artist, Angelina "Joy" Emanuele, from Australia.

JOY, as all the kids call her, a professional dancer, singer, choreographer, songwriter, an all round entertainer and producer has performed all around the world. By the age of 20 she had danced in Monte Carlo at The Princess Grace Academie de Danse Classique, Andrew Lloyd Webber's CATS, produced and directed her own dance company, choreographed and appeared in major commercials and events, danced in ballet companies in Australia and Europe, won Best Photographic Model and was Australia's National "Flashdance" Finalist at 14.

Leaving Australia in 1990 with a major musical recording career in mind, she decided to put her years in where she wanted to make it! She spent one year in London and from the advice of Micheal Rosenblatt, who she met at Geffen Records and thought her material was really strong, told her her music was more for the US. So she hopped on a plane and decided to make it happen in America. She has since had songs placed in major TV Shows and Movies, formed her own band consting of some of the world's best players, she created and performed her one woman rock cabaret show "SINGLE GIRL", which had great reviews and got back into teaching dance to kids, teaching to her own music, it was from seeing the kids response from hearing her music that she was inspired to create THE JOY HOUSE, which is slowly creating a life of it's own and has become a great artistic and creative outlet for this amazingly talented girl. She loves working with kids. She finds it truly fulfilling. The kids give her joy and she gives them joy. Give joy, get joy! A win/win situation! To love what you do in life is the greatest joy.

She has chosen now to devote her time, talent and creativity to the children. She saw how many kids were growing up. "If only they had had what she was so very fortunate to have as a child. If they could have a taste of what she was given. Experience her JOY HOUSE in Australia, where she grew up" she thought to herself. So she decided to build her JOY HOUSE for all kids. Seeing the lack of physical activity in schools and children's inability to entertain themselves in constructive ways, the constant exposure to negativity via television, movies, music and CD-ROM's. She saw a need to create a happy, positive, constructive and entertaining time and place for kids so they can be inspired and not get bored. THE JOY HOUSE is a special place where they can visit after school or on TV. A place where they can to learn to find their joy, learn new things and have fun! She sees the show eventually becoming interactive via the internet and TV streaming and later THE JOY HOUSE portal for kids. That is how THE JOY HOUSE has come to be. It is a very powerful 'multi-media' vision that is slowly but surely becoming a reality. Every child can find his or her special room and interest because THE JOY HOUSE is their house!

MUSIC is one of the most powerful and positive ways you can teach a child. THE JOY HOUSE TV SHOW is a music driven show. The show and the program's taught at schools incorporate ALL original songs and compositions written by Joy which she has called JOY HOUSE DANCE MUSIC. She sees THE JOY HOUSE becoming the hit factory for positive dance music for kids'. The demographic audience seems to be pre- schoolers to 4th graders. It is not Barney but it isn't Britney Spears it is right in the middle. Which could be one of the biggest music buying audiences. Music makes learning fun! Just watch the kids self-esteem and confidence improve. What one says manifests. Positive messages through music can result in a positive attitude & state of mind. The seeds to success in life. There is a need & there this a huge untapped market.

THE JOY HOUSE was being implemented in The LA'S BEST - BEST FACES after school program at Menlo Elementary in 2000, that was a special fund sponsored by The Mayor of Los Angeles. She also has received Certificates from Mayor Riordan for her work with kids and the community. She also is now currently teaching for The City of Santa Monica at The Myles Playhouse. She would like to see THE JOY HOUSE School Program duplicated in every inner city school. Where as you know there is not a lot for kids. THE JOY HOUSE needs sponsorship and funding. There is a desperate need to implement and duplicate her program in many more schools in Los Angeles that is why any kind of publicity would be greatly appreciated.

THE JOY HOUSE is the "coolest" place and a favorite class at school for hundreds of kids each week. In the school program and workshops, kids learn the basics of all styles of Dance, Gymnastics, Music, Designing and Performing. The program builds self esteem, confidence, flexibility, stamina and strength while teaching technique in a fun, cool and hip way, giving them the tools that may spark an interest and build their creativity. "Teach a child to dream and you help keep a child out of trouble". Students are also constantly given opportunities to perform with JOY around Los Angeles at community events. So far, JOY and the Kids have performed at the following..........

She was featured on KLCS "In Focus", she has written for Creative Child Magazine and has also performed for SEAP (School Education Activities Program) at middle and high schools to great audience reactions and received great press for her work in all she endeavors.

THE JOY HOUSE has also become a big hit for kids as a children's Birthday Party. The Joy House Birthday Party! It is hip, cool, positive and fun! It is the ultimate party vibe for kids where kids have fun learning the joy of dancing, music, dress-up, make-up and games!

She is a winner, a hard worker and makes it happen. All ages love JOY! Her energy is contagious! The Joy House is the "new" vibe for kids. It is a win/win situation for all. It is universal, global and it works. Help kids help themselves.

Please sponsor, support, publicize and promote this unique program and vision for kids. Help Joy bring the arts back into schools and children's lives where it is so desparately needed.

Joy's goal is to have THE JOY HOUSE music driven TV Show for kids on Network Television, pumping out hit songs for kids and being produced in a way kids are constantly interacplace and entertainment venue or kids. A great Birthday Party idea for children. A place where kids can be entertained and learn the "joy" of many things!

She is on the search for investors with a universal vision for kids........
