Erika met Juliu Horvath in NYC when she moved there in 1993 to study dance. She had only been dancing for a couple of years and whereas her technique consisted mainly of equal parts force and desire, she was extremely grateful to find a teacher who could guide her into the inner-workings of her own dance. She trained intensively with Juliu for 5 years in the Gyrotonic Expansion System. With her new movement vocabulary, she went on to perform with Maureen Fleming, Jennifer Muller/The Works, Zen Companhia de Danca, Min Tanaka and Meftas Dance Theater. Erika is currently Associate Artistic Director of Soulskin Dance and a Specialized Gyrotonic and Gyrokinesis Master Trainer. She travels the world teaching workshops and cannot wait to visit Sarasota, FL to share her trainings with you! Sign up early to claim your spot!!
