At sixteen, Erin was a finalist for the NSLI-Y program affiliated with the Russian American Foundation to study for six weeks at the Bolshoi Ballet Academy in Moscow. She later received an invitation to attend the international program year round. In 2013 after attending an exchange program in Melbourne, Australia with the Australian Ballet School, she joined Atlanta Ballet’s second company and began teaching for the Atlanta Ballet Center for Dance Education. She was later promoted to an apprentice with the company and was afforded the opportunity to work with world renowned artists and choreographers such as Yuri Possokhov, Craig Davidson and Max Petrov. Her passion for teaching aspiring artists continues to develop as she makes her new home here in Jackson Hole.
2x per week: Tuesday & Thursday
Ballet students advance through a carefully developed curriculum designed to teach students the highly technical language of ballet, emphasizing correct alignment, strength, flexibility, balance, grace, focus, discipline, musicality, and self-expression.
*Please note that ballet and modern dance are at the core of Dancers’ Workshop’s curriculum. It is highly recommended that students study Ballet and Modern at the same level simultaneously.
Ballet 1 begins at 9 years old and students will advance to higher levels as they master the curriculum as evaluated by their instructor and the School Director. Students who were in a level higher than basics last school year will take a placement class at the beginning of this school year to determine their starting level for the semester. Students will be placed in the level that maximizes their learning potential and can be advanced at any time.
