DanceFIT news & events
We will be interviewing DanceFIT instructors so you can get to know them & their classes a little bit better. This week we are interviewing Erin!
What do you teach at DanceFIT?
I teach SHiNE™️ Dance Fitness.
How would you describe your classes & teaching style?
SHiNE DANCE FITNESS™ brings original routines to life using hit music and choreography for all abilities. Rooted in jazz, ballet, and hip-hop, this workout gives you a creative outlet to escape from daily stress. Each class includes the perfect balance of high cardio and toning to ensure you receive a full-body workout. SHiNE is a mood-lifting experience that leaves you feeling capable, confident, and connected to a supportive community. My goal is to create a friendly, judgment-free vibe so everyone feels welcome and at ease. If you are moving your body, you are doing it right!
What do you do outside of the studio for fun?
When I am not on the dance floor, you can find me baking, spending time with friends and family, watching college basketball (let’s go Duke!), volunteering at my daughters’ elementary school, and serving as a Daisy Troop leader.
What music will we hear in your fitness classes?
SHiNE is set to pop music. One of our brand promises is to be CURRENT, so we take the hit songs you are rocking out to in your cars and bring them to life with original choreography released each month. Car-SHiNEing is a real thing!
Give us a quick bio
Dance has always been a big part of my life. I started as a competitive gymnast where the dance elements in the beam and floor routines were my favorite. I switched to dance in middle school and studied many styles including jazz, hip hop, ballet, contemporary, and Irish step dance. After college, I realized I missed having a dance outlet. SHiNE™️ DANCE FITNESS caught my attention with its upbeat pop music, fun choreography, and positive and inclusive vibe. I became the first instructor to bring SHiNE to Massachusetts in 2019. Teaching SHiNE gives me purpose outside of motherhood, satisfies my need to “dance it out,” and brings me so much fulfillment as I share my love of dance with others.
I have a degree in civil and environmental engineering and industry experience in the field of water resources, but my current role is the Director of Community Engagement for SHiNE’s online community and a mentor for SHiNE’s online instructor training.
Thank you Erin! We love hearing more about you!
At DanceFIT we focus on cultivating a positive & community focused environment. Our classes focus on positivity & motivation. We want to share our love for dance with everyone from our youngest little dancers to hard-working students, and adult dancers attending class for the joy of it!
