“We should consider every day lost on which we have not danced at least once.” - Friedrich Nietzsche. This is the quote that Erin lives by.
Erin has spent a great deal of time dancing from around the age of three when they lived in England and her parents enrolled her in ballet, just like a lot of parents do, because seeing their little girl in a tutu is adorable! Around the age of 13, she realised that dancing was something that she was serious about. Erin has been a part of Rise Dance Company in Tauranga since the age of 9, both as a pupil and a teacher. Over the years, Erin has taken every opportunity available in front of her with open arms – e.g. taking part in hip hop performance and advanced contemporary groups at her dance studio, and competing regionally and nationally with her school for the DanceNZ Made competitions. Erin has more recently developed a passion for creating her own choreography.
In 2018 Erin moved to Hamilton to study Primary Teaching and Business Management at the University of Waikato and to teach dance at Excite Academy. Her long-term goal is to open her own dance company.
Erin thrives on spreading her love for dance to people of all ages and experience levels. She believes that what makes a good dancer is knowing that there is always more to learn.
