Erin has been dancing for seven years in partner dances starting with Lindy hop and Blues and eventually branching out to Tango, West Coast Swing, Zouk, Kizomba, and a fusion of all of these! She was first introduced to the term “Micro” in 2011 in Bellingham, WA at a blues dance, fell in love with the connection first and continued to develop her own technique in the fusion scene a few years later as it grew. In 2015 she moved to Seattle, WA, but continued to dance in Bellingham, Vancouver, BC, and even travelled to the Bay area for dances and within a year was starting to discover a community that fully embraced micro. With a background in Lindy and Blues and a passion for close embrace dance forms like tango, kizomba, and blues she started exploring the possibilities of bringing different elements from these dances into her micro aesthetic, a combination of solid connection, isolations, and intention. Within the last year she started μ and I Micro Practica, Seattle’s only micro specific event, and has been growing the community over the last year with practica, instruction, and music for the community to grow, connect, and dance.
