Erin is always looking to develop new ideas in teaching so that she can make her students strong athletes; free from injuries, whom are employable within the performing arts industry and have lifelong careers in dance.

Erin is passionate about dance and her school. She has seen many changes over the last 17 years, both within her own school and the dance industry. She has seen countless students come and go, many of whom have gone onto have careers in the performing arts industry with 2 past students opening up their own dance schools.

Dance is where Erin’s love truly lies and no matter who Erin is teaching and working with, she will always give her students 100% commitment, passion and her love for dance.

After a few months of wanting to learn more, Jahrel joined a local crew called Hype Dance Company, learning hiphop and choreography.

Jahrel also studied at Liberatus School of Performing Arts studying Ballet, Jazz, Contemporary, Musical Theatre and after 3 years successfully graduated in 2012.
