Erika grew up in Atlanta and has been dancing since she was five years old. She trained at Impact Dance of Atlanta until her senior year of high school and continued her dancing with Atlanta Academy of Ballet and Dance, focusing on contemporary and tap. Her dance experience includes ballet, tap, lyrical, contemporary, modern, and ballroom dance.
Alongside her love for dance is her passion for theatre. Erika is currently the Assistant Director for Lolek’s Storytellers Theatre Company and has been the Assistant Director for five years. Her theatre credits include choreographing, staging, coaching, and working tech and crew for productions such as “A Wrinkle in Time,” “Tarzan the Musical,” and “The Wizard of Oz,” in which she also had the opportunity to perform the role of the Scarecrow.
Erika is thrilled to be able to share her love for dance and theatre with her students and hopes to help them discover the many talents that God has given each and every one of them.
