My name is Vanessa Erickson and I am honored to have been asked to be a
teacher at Cathy's Dance Studio. I have been dancing for 10 years and have
been dancing at Cathy's ever since the day it opened! My very first dance class
was a beginners jazz class at the age of 6. From that very moment I knew that I
loved to dance and that I was very interested in exploring more styles. After that
year, I continued on with dancing and as of now, I am educated in the styles of
tap, jazz, hip hop, ballet, lyrical, and contemporary. I am also on Cathy's Dance
Studio's competitive team. I joined when I was 12 years old and I have loved it
ever since. I love being on stage and performing with my team, as well as
competing against other studios. I am very thankful to be apart of such an
amazing studio that has several amazing teachers. I am also happy to say that
Cathy's contains several  talented and loving dancers that make great life long
friends.
Besides the love of dance, I also love to interact with children. I have babysat for
many years and have demonstrated younger kids dance classes since I was 12. I am very excited to be able
to teach our dancers and interact them. I am looking forward to teaching the dancers everything I know and
helping them further their dance careers!
