The Facility

Dance Expressions by Erica boasts a state-of-the-art facility! We offer four large dance studios with professionally installed sprung floors, 3 with hardwood flooring and one with a marley overlay. Each studio has floor to ceiling mirrors, custom built ballet barres, Flexi Roll foam mats, tumbling mats & skill builders and excellent sound systems. We offer closed circuit viewing to all four studios, along with viewing rooms, spacious waiting areas, a kitchen/homework space and an informative front lobby. The Dance Expressions boutique offers the proper shoes, tights and attire for dance class.

Every kid is one caring adult away from being a success story.

Our Mission

Dance Expressions by Erica is a reputable and welcoming dance studio located in the heart of Irwin. We provide a high quality dance education from a professional and positive faculty for all ages, abilities and levels of experience. The studio features a premium preschool program, an exciting recreational program and pre-professional classes with opportunities to be on our award-winning competitive teams.  Dance Expressions is committed to a fun and challenging environment for all of our programs. We expect dedication and encourage progress from the dancers while nurturing each student’s unique gift of talent and creativity. The dancers can expect a motivational and inspiring place to express themselves through the art of dance. Dance Expressions believes that it’s students can accomplish anything. We, as their instructors, help them strive to reach their goals and guide them on the path towards success. Not only will our dancers experience exceptional dance training, the students here at Dance Expressions will learn how to excel in all aspects of their lives. We promote a strong work ethic, positive attitude, good communication skills, time management abilities, problem-solving skills, teamwork, ability to accept and learn from criticism, flexibility and adaptability, and, most importantly, self confidence and self-worth. Dance Expressions by Erica’s owner and director, Erica Rae Kamensky, is passionate about creating an always evolving, well-rounded, caring atmosphere for everyone involved in the DEBE experience!
