As a teacher, I have taught hundreds of students of different levels, in various dance styles, ranging from contemporary, theater, jazz, hip-hop, Chinese, improvisation, and choreography. I am passionate about helping students to achieve their individualized goals through her unique, comprehensive, and supportive teaching style. I am passionate about education and believes in the role art plays in how people learn, grow and connect with each other.

For me, dance class should be playful and stress-free. Getting to know my students is the first and foremost thing I do, because I believe it is the way to build connection and trust between my students and me.

I think the technique is less important than helping my students build their own confidence about their body. I use personalized approach to assist students to be aware of the sensation of their bodies and help them recognize the subtlety of the body movement.

While teaching movement, I explain each movement in a very detailed ...

Dancing with Rourou is so much fun and so rewarding! Her extensive background in dance theory and choreography is very apparent while she is teaching but more importantly she is just so much fun to learn from! Her style is very personalized for each student and she is so patient when working with you to make sure you are getting exactly what you are looking for out of the experience. She has wonderful movement and style that translates to a great carefree class where you feel great at the end of every class. I just love Rourou's classes and you will too!

Shakespeare wrote some of the best roles for actors, and his work is just packed with tools you can use to get the juiciest possible performances. I can help you find and use those tools, whether you’re highly experienced or you’ve never acted before.

I learned the basics of acting through doing Shakespeare, and I’ve introduced many young performers to acting the same way. (FYI it’s totally normal if you hated reading it in school!)

Erin is an excellent instructor. She is very knowledgeable, very generous with that knowledge, very attentive, and encouraging. She is not only good at what she does but she is also very good at teaching. If you're unsure when picking an instructor here, you couldn't go wrong with Erin.
Genevieve
She is great, just great. 1st course yet she immediately helped me understand what were the real issues and how to tackle them. Now I feel confident to pass in front of an audience, because I know I will be heard and I will be understood!
Tyler
I had to learn an Irish dialect for a big audition I was called in for last minute. My friend suggested Erin to help with dialect coaching and audition coaching, and man, I'm so grateful. With Erin's training and expertise, I was able to learn the Irish dialect in an hour and nailed the audition! She has experience with multiple acting and audition techniques...she's able to speak multiple acting "languages". If you're looking for any audition coaching or dialect coaching, I definitely recommend Erin! She knows what she's doing!
