Eryka Lynn Waller, Pennsylvania native, began dancing at the age of three. Her first dance experience was with The Children's Ballet in Philadelphia. Eryka has studied at many local dance schools: Progressive Center for Dance, Canaan Institute of the Arts, Gwendolyn Bye Dance Center, Napoli School of Music and Dance, Koresh, Eclipse Performing Dance Company, and Beyond Dance Company. Eryka has studied various genres of dance, including: ballet, jazz, hip hop, and modern. Eryka was also a member of Academy of Notre Dame Dance Company throughout her high school years.
In second grade, at Waldron Mercy academy, Eryka Lynn began her musical theater journey. Since then Eryka has performed on stages in Los Angeles, Philadelphia, New Jersey, and New York singing, dancing, and acting. Eryka has been blessed to work with many Broadway professionals and choreographers through her participation with Broadway Dream Foundation. Eryka has also had the honor of working with two-time Emmy nominated choreographer Spencer Liff.
In 2012, Eryka began working with the dance ministry at church and in 2016 she became the leader of the ministry. Under her leadership, the ministry has grown to serve over 90 children who have a strong desire to learn the art of dance. Eryka has provided dance instruction at churches in the Philadelphia area to teach students who may not have the ability to attend a dance studio.
Eryka Lynn feels it is time to develop a space where the art of dance and performance can be taught, and her love of the arts can be shared more broadly.
Eryka lives by this quote “Life is not a rehearsal live each day as if it is opening night.”
