The Lovely Lady Herself

Currently based in Columbia, Missouri, Erin Ryan is a bellydance performer and aspiring instructor.  Her largely improvisational dance style has a building background in Middle Eastern folkloric and modern dance forms as well as the contemporary American interpretations.  Each performance and practice seeks to bring out a narrative, spiritual, and feminine focus.

Presently, Erin dances both as a soloist and does ensemble work, collaborating with other fellow dancers as well as participating as a member of the Muses in Motion dance troupe.  While her training continues in Columbia, Jefferson City, and St. Louis, she hopes that her experiences will soon culminate in her dream of becoming a professional bellydance instructor within the next few years.
