Erika Holmes

Legend has it that Erika Holmes began dancing before she could walk, but didn't have the opportunity

to take formal dance classes until the age of 8 years old. During her college years on the NC State

dance team, her serious study of dance took off. Erika has over 20 years of experience as a

choreographer, all-star/school cheer coach, college dance coach, and studio instructor for various

schools and studios. Her most memorable experiences have been as the head coach of the dance

teams at Wake Forest University, The University of North Carolina at Greensboro, and, of course,

her Alma Mater, NC State. Pack4Life!️ Erika teaches jazz, tap, hip hop, lyrical, contemporary,  

acrobatics, musical theater, and oversees the performance and company programs at

The Studio as the Creative Director.


Along with dance, Erika has always had a passion for studying child development which

led her to earn her master’s degree in counselor education. Her background in counselor

education gives her an insight into children that really helps all children that come under

Erika’s instruction shine.  

Together, Erika’s passions for dance and counseling children showed her a clear path to

her dream of opening ‘The Studio.’ Next to her husband and four children, The

Studio is Erika’s ultimate passion project. Everyone can find a place to dance at The Studio!
