ERIN - PRINCIPAL
Erin began her dance training at Brixham Danceworks when she was four years old. She has taken classes in jazz, tap, ballet, pointe, modern, lyical, and hip-hop under the instruction of Nicki Wilford, Cheryl Arnold, Jenny Letendre, Leah Richardson, Morgan Sanborn, and Clare MacDonald. Erin also assisted in tap and modern classes at Brixham. During the summer of 2016, Erin joined eleven other dancers to tour with the Dance Olympus convention as a VIP. She and the other VIP's assisted faculty members such as Jon Finck, Michelle Fortner, Jen Walker, Nikki Prichard, Stanley Glover, Danny Valle, Linda Giancaspro, and Germaul Barnes in teaching daily classes in jazz, ballet, tap, hip-hop, modern, and lyrical. In addition, two faculty members choreographed group pieces for the VIPs, which were performed during the faculty show in each of the seven cities on tour.
During high school, Erin was a member of the varsity cheerleading team, starting her freshman year. She attended four state championships, as well as four New England championships. When she was a sophomore, the team earned the title of New England runner-up. Erin was also a member of the National Honor Society and National Spanish Honor Society.
Erin is currently a freshman at Vassar College, and intends to pursue a major in the natural sciences. She takes ballet classes with Miriam Mahdaviani-Goldstone and June Omura Wheeler. Erin is also a member of three student-run dance organizations on campus: Vassar On Tap, Vass Shakers, and HYPE.
