About this pro

I believe that dance is for everyone, and I'm passionate about helping others discover the joy and challenge of dance. I teach from the principles of dance, meaning that I will not only teach specific movements, but give a more holistic understanding that will support further understanding as we progress. 
I have experience teaching working in various capacities with students ages 2-85 with many different abilities and goals.  My teaching style is energetic, demanding, and nurturing.  I teach ballet, modern, contemporary, creative dance, or composition at any level that is needed.
I have a BFA in dance performance with a concentration in composition from one of the top conservatories in the nation (Purchase College, SUNY).  Since graduating, I have been dancing and choreographing professionally in the city as well as dancing for and co-directing a new Hudson Valley based repertory company, A-Y/dancers. With my strong technical background and knowledge of the dance field, I am also able to assist young dancers in preparing for a career in dance.

I enjoy providing my students with skills that they can apply in many different ways to different exercises, to choreography, and even to their daily lives. I love to watch those "Aha" moments happen as they realize that each bit of learning can go a long way.

    Erin is a fantastic dance teacher. She is patient and articulate, and she quickly and effectively pinpoints exactly how to best help you improve. She has masterful control of her own body, and she makes different concepts/movements/etc. feel effortless and accessible. I highly recommend taking lessons with her!

    Erin is wonderful! She’s an insightful teacher with a keen ability to fine tune her teaching to meet your personal interests. Her lessons are really fun and unique, and get me thinking not just moving.

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

The first three private lessons are just $30 each. This is when we’re still getting to know each other, so I can have a chance to see how you move, learn about your goals and challenges, and design a program that’s all about what you want. After that, your individually tailored lessons are $50 for an hour, $35 for a half hour. Usually we don’t need it, but please note that if additional space rental is needed, that will be an extra fee.
