Erika Moreno

Erika Moreno

Erika Moreno I have never been in anything related to dancing until I came to Missouri Valley College and it was definitely one of the best things that I have done in my whole life. When I took Intro to Dance Technique I knew that it was the start of discovering great things about dance. I see dance as a great form of expression and art. You can make anything that you have experienced or felt into a great dance that speaks to the audience and then immediately they feel touched. I also joined this company because I think it'll definitely help me get the choreography much faster.
