dc2-ballroom-faculty-circleErica began her dance training at 3 years old. It was soon obvious that this was her passion and chosen career as she started actively teaching at only 16 years old. Excelling as a studio competition dancer, she was later drawn to pursue Latin Ballroom, both for its challenging intensity and feminine beauty.  In less than 2 years into her training, Erica won a World Championship title in her division, sparking her to move to New York City to continue her training as a professional. Training under champion coaches such as Shirley Ballas, Nadia Eftadel, and Joanna Zacharewicz, Erica has been a top Latin competitor in ballroom competitions across the country.  Later moving to Los Angeles, she was able to continue her love for teaching and training. There she was able to realize the true magic of exposing ballroom to competition studios. 

She is currently a Professional Latin competitor as well as an excelling choreographer. She thoroughly enjoys expanding student’s versatility and knowledge of Latin Ballroom technique. She is a faculty member of Revive Convention and teaches Master Classes all over the country in both Latin Ballroom and Contemporary. Her positive approach to teaching keeps her in high demand and leaves students feeling inspired!”
