ABOUT Erin (Login to Contact Erin )

I'm an Art Conservator who specializes in the study and care of paintings, with an emphasis on modern and contemporary art. My current position is at a museum in Washington D.C. I enjoy a lot of things in my free time; music is near the top of that list and I'm beginning to think I may be happiest when I'm dancing.


I took ballroom, latin, and swing dance classes (and a random tap class) all through college and kept dancing until I went to grad school. At that point I made the foolish mistake of allowing hectic scheduling and life in general to get in the way of my dancing. I'm trying to correct that mistake now and am finding that, if I don't think too hard, my feet can still find the beat. I don't have many local friends who dance and my introverted side finds it difficult to walk into a new dance group on my own. But I really miss my old dance community and would love to become part of a new one. At least I know we'll all have one thing in common!


I'd love to find somewhere to do west coast swing in the D.C. area. I'd also really like to learn hand dancing while I'm living here.
