Classes

Contemporary


Erin challenges her students in physicality, floor work, improvisation, and flow. Starting her class with body mind awareness, she gathers students’ attention to the room before bringing in cardio to get heart rates up. Across the floor can range from drills in floor work or inversions to structured improvisation and weight sharing.

This contemporary style engages the entire body and encourages students to bring their own quality to phrase work while introducing moments of theatricality. Erin cultivates a warm environment while challenging the body and mind. Class is our time to take risks and test limits in a safe and exciting space.

Stretch


Erin’s stretch classes have a heavy yoga influence and are excellent for gaining flexibility and general body mind awareness. Class is conducted in a meditative atmosphere and focuses on the importance of breath. Students are encouraged to turn their attention inward to deepen stretches, promote healthy alignment, and relax the mind.

Erin approaches each class with new energy, keeping student’s varying bodies in mind while using her background in kinesiology to motivate length in the spine, hip flexors, and hamstrings.

Testimonials


The classes taught by teacher Erin Lyons at our Villadanza school during the month of August were of great quality.  For us it is important to know how dance is currently working in important cities such as New York since that can give our students a professional perspective!

In addition she as a teacher has very good methodology;  She is very clear in her explanations and knows how to reach the students correctly!  Their combinations are of great technical and interpretive challenges which prepares the dancers very well for both the scene and for their own creation!  It was a very enriching and happy experience for our school !!!”

Ana, Villa Danza in Medellin, Colombia

It’s been an amazing experience sharing the workshop with Erin, she has helped all of us to challenge ourselves and also she gave us the chance to show our own style. At the same time, she pushed us to find new ways to move our body and dance.

Everyone in the class felt her great energy and learned new ways to work as long as we were enjoying the work.
So thanks Erin and I hope we meet you again and have more of your classes!!!”
