She was later chosen as a resident of the Charlotte Street Foundation Urban Culture Project for two consecutive years. Her work has also appeared in the Kansas City Fringe Festival, Kansas City Women’s Chorus concert and with C. Round Ballet Works in California. Erin began teaching dance in high school and has taught ballet and modern to young children in the Kansas City area ever since.
