In 2019, Erin had the opportunity to student teach Shining lights under the guidance of Principal Teacher Emma Tobin and alongside Alicia Mason. This included learning repertoire and movement for upcoming performances and allowed Erin to further her skills and gain further knowledge and appreciation for her work.


Erin is happy to be part of the team at Southern Lights and is excited to share her passion with all students, while still providing a fun and accepting learning environment.
