Erin's dancing has been compared to a Ferrari as well as a warm, gooey, chocolate chip cookie. It can't hurt that she has been dancing since she was three. Her tango life, which is now a freshman in college, has largely been shared with her partner and husband Doruk Golcu. They met on the dance floor at the All Night Milonga in NYC, where she refused to dance with him on account of being "too tired." Such a tango baby! Don't worry, they worked it out. She has trained largely in "Estilo Naveira," which is nuevo in substance, but anything you want in style. Erin's 'Bacon number' is 2, thanks to being in a play with Anna Chlumsky (the "My Girl" girl) in 2006.
Since leaving the Bay Area in 2015, she and Doruk have been traveling all over the US and Europe teaching Argentine Tango. They are now simultaneously the parents of a baby tango community in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Come visit!
"I enjoyed the opportunity to dance with Bay Area tango professionals outside of my regular partnership with Doruk, to see how other dancers were working and thinking about tango."
