About Us

Dance Expressions by Erica is a full-service dance studio with a state-of-the-art facility, specializing in Ballet, Pointe, Jazz, Tap, Acrobat, Tumbling, Lyrical, Hip Hop, Contemporary and Musical Theater instruction by a professional faculty. We have students from all over Westmoreland and Allegheny Counties. Currently, Dance Expressions offers a Recital Program for recreational students ages 3-18 and a Competitive Program for students interested in more intense training. We believe every child should have the opportunity to study with reputable instructors in a safe and positive environment, no matter the program they chose to participate in.  The founder of Dance Expressions by Erica, Erica Rae Kamensky, is dedicated to maintaining a peaceful, friendly and pleasant atmosphere where every student feels comfortable and accomplished.  Miss Erica couldn’t be more proud of her dancers’ success and looks forward to another outstanding dance season.
