|Ankeny Dance & Performing Arts Academy
Erica Pierce began
her association with Ankeny Dance when she was just in second grade. She studied and practiced to constantly improve in
dance, and by her freshman year in high school, she received an invitation from Ms. Sarah to join the Star Dancers. As a member
of the Star Dancers, Erica performed for Disneyland guests on the Carnation Plaza Stage at the end of Main Street, and also
at Silver Dollar City and the Branson Variety Theater.
also enjoyed sharing her love of dance with younger students as a teacher-in-training with the Ankeny Dance Student Teacher
Program. Working with Ankeny Dance & Performing Arts Academy students must have made a positive impact on her; she is
looking forward to continue working with young people as a career. Erica is currently enrolled at DMACC in Ankeny, and
plans to go on to Iowa State University to complete their degree program in Child, Adult, and Family Services.
Miss Erica says she loves spending her time helping children and watching
them grow. When she's not working, she most enjoys activities with her family and friends. You might even catch her watching
a race or two at the Knoxville Raceway ... she's a big sprint car fan!
