Erica completed a three year vocational diploma course at Laine Theatre Arts in Epsom, Surrey achieving the Trinity London Diploma in Professional Musical Theatre. She also qualified to become a Modern Theatre Dance teacher with the Imperial Society of Teachers Of Dancing and received her Diploma in Dance Instruction whilst training full time at Laine Theatre Arts. Erica continued her academic studies at the Guildford School Of Acting in 2012 and achieved a First Class Honours degree in Theatre Studies. In July 2014, her colleagues at Laine gave me the opportunity to deliver a two-week summer programme for a renowned theatre company in Malta called Masquerade Theatre School. She was responsible for the dance and movement workshops and was given the opportunity to work alongside experienced, trained professionals within the performance industry. Erica undertook her PGCE in Secondary Drama at Cardiff Metropolitan University in 2014 and currently teaches Dance and Drama at Westside School. She finds that teaching is an avenue through which she can inspire, empower and share her passion for performance and learning with others.
