Born and raised in Brooklyn, New York, Erika Lopez has always had a love for dance. Growing up she would learn choreography by watching videos on her own and learning from others. She started out with hip hop, had been a part of her High School’s dance team and began taking classes at Broadway Dance Center. It wasn’t until October 2007 that she joined the Lorenz Latin Dance Studio and found her passion for Salsa. She started off taking salsa classes and joined the student dance team, where she realized performing was going to be an important part of her life. Since then she has gotten the privilege to dance on the semi-pro team Reflejo de Lorenz and excelled to the Pro Team, Lorenz Latin Dancers, and has traveled to different parts of the world performing, including Peru, Texas, Puerto Rico and dr to name a few. Throughout her time in the studio she’s learned other various styles of dance including cha-cha, hustle and rumba, and bettering in bachata and merengue. She is also one of the children instructors in their kid’s program, as well as an instructor for the adult classes. She teaches weekend workshops including Zumba, as well as cha cha, partner work and hip hop alongside Christopher Guzman. Throughout her 7 years dancing she has been grateful for her continuous growth as a dancer. She’s performed at venues including Madison Square garden and citi field, and has performed alongside various artists such as Loisaides and Winstar. Erika has been fortunate enough to obtain opportunities to perform on live television such as Fox 5 and NY1. She continues to flourish and grow, hoping to inspire others with the same love she shares for dance and is blessed to be a part of an amazing experience.
