About Erika B.

Hello Friends! My name is Erika, I go by Ricky. I have been dancing since 2010. I grew up taking classes at a studio and dancing on teams while in school. My favorite genres to teach are hip hop and jazz because of the high energy. However, I do have experience teaching modern, lyrical and ballet as well. If you are the type of person more interested in conditioning classes such as flexibility or strength, I also offer that as well. Before we dive into class, I like to get to know my students a little more, in order to tailor the class to their liking. My goal is to teach new skills and hone skills that might already be there but in the most enjoyable way.

Ricky is the most thoughtful and encouraging instructor I’ve had in years! She started out asking me what areas of my body I wanted to work on and if I had any previous injuries that might cause discomfort. After answering a few questions and explaining my knee injury, she carefully selected a routine that would fit me best. She was kind and, again, very encouraging -- a pleasure to talk to/work with and elaborated on correct posture beautifully. Ricky, you’re the best - I can’t wait for our next session!

I owe Erika a ton! I was super nervous for the first dance at my wedding and she helped get me past my anxiety and actually taught me some pretty slick moves that impressed my wife and guests. Erika’s a very patient and sweet teacher, I highly recommend her.
