|"During the last 20 years, Erin has studied various forms of traditional African dance from countries such as Ghana, Guinea, the Ivory Coast, Cameroon and Haiti. She is inspired by the incredible energy of the live drumming and the sense of joy and community that these forms of dance bring. For over 10 years, she joined Curtis Andrews in the Newfoundland performance group, Dzolali, which focused primarily on the rhythms, songs and dances of the Ewe people in Ghana. More recently, she studied with Guinean dancers and drummers. She has taught African dance classes to people of all ages. In addition to her dance experience, Erin is a group facilitator and adult education teacher."
