Over the years Erica has been drawn to many different athletic pursuits and movement arts. By early high school she was a varsity swimmer, diver, cheerleader and water polo player, and was named female athlete of the year in her senior year. In college she joined the USC snowboard team, took dance and yoga classes on the side, and developed a secret but sincere obsession with circus arts. Fearing that she was too old for circus school, she moved to Tahoe after graduation and spent the next 7 years traveling the country competing in snowboarding halfpipe. Oddly, a feeling lingered that something was missing. That changed the day she heard that the Tahoe Flow Arts studio had opened! Erica showed up the first week of classes and absolutely fell in love with aerials and the wonderful community there. She knew instantly that she had finally found what she had been looking for in a physical art...the perfect combination of strength, flexibility, artistry, thrill and grace. Erica began performing aerial fabrics in 2014, exactly one year to the day after her first class. When performing in the air, she finally feels like she is exactly where she needs to be.
