A dancer since childhood, Erika also works with performers, helping them connect to movement so it makes sense, feels easier, and gets them more work. Erika's signature online dance basics bootcamp, Don’t Dodge the Dance Call, has been featured in both Backstage, Playbill, and FitForBroadway

Erika holds a B.F.A. in Musical Theatre from The University of Michigan, and danced professionally for over 20 years before turning her attention to teaching, choreography, fitness, and eventually motherhood. Each new skill complimented the previous one, and now, whether she's working online, on stage, or on camera, she takes a well-rounded approach with her clients, building strength, endurance, connection, and confidence in their constant state of forward motion.
