Clarice, It was truly my pleasure to work with your company. I am proud to be a part of promoting socially responsible businesses. What a great vibe at your event! I look forward to working with you again! Erin
Erin was wonderful to work with! Super responsive and professional. The crowd loved her! Not only were she and her dance partner wonderful dancers, but they were also great at getting the crowd going and teaching them how to dance- they loved it!Dec 5, 2017VerifiedErin Parsley Dance's reply
Hi Sam, we had such a fun and fabulous time dancing at your event. I’ll never forget getting to dance at a castle!! I loved how willing the crowd was to get up and participate. They were awesome! I look forward to bringing more good dance vibes to future events. :) Erin
Private Dance Lessons
Erin is a fantastic teacher for any level. I'm a returning dancer who wanted to revisit technical foundations but also get back into choreography right away. Our 1:1 sessions in modern/contemporary have been easeful and challenging at the same time -- she diagnosed my skill level and has created a program that's just right for both what I can do now and where I want to go. And it's fun! She teaches in a lovely space with easy free parking that's also extremely close to a Muni hub.Jan 9, 2019VerifiedErin Parsley Dance's reply
Rachel, it was such a treat to work with you and get you dancing! I am so glad you had fun! Hugs, Erin

Erin is not only an incredible dancer, she's an incredible instructor, and an incredible person! She is skilled in so many styles, it's easy to go deep in one or explore many if you're not sure what you're most interested in. I look forward to every week - I'd highly recommend working with Erin! And - her space is incredible!Feb 27, 2019VerifiedErin Parsley Dance's reply

Private Dance Lessons
I just started taking private swing dance lessons with Erin and she is wonderful to work with. She has a great practice space near Forest Hill station, that has a large parking lot as well. I am by no means a naturally gifted dancer, but she is patient and very good at breaking down the steps and explaining them in ways that I can understand. I am so excited to continue working with here!Nov 15, 2017VerifiedErin Parsley Dance's reply
Hannah, it’s been such a pleasure being a part of your surprise lessons for Jared, and now getting to work with both of you! Lucky me. :) Erin
