Erica Martinelli is the current choreographer and director of the Inner Spirit Dance Company. She has had a passion for dance since adolescence that was expressed through high school and college. Erica coached the West Islip Kickline Squad for 8 years. Her growth in dance evolved towards a more ethnic direction when she started taking classes at Inner Spirit in 2005. Later that year, she joined the Dance Company and began performing throughout the tri-state area for public and private events. In 2010, Erica started teaching dance classes at Inner Spirit. She balances stretching, technique, and choreography in her classes with an energetic and enthusiastic approach. Erica became the Dance Company’s director and choreographer in 2014.
In 2019, Erica completed her 200 hour Yoga Teacher Certification with Roni Yaari at Inner Spirit and is registered with the Yoga Alliance. Through yoga, Erica has found a much deeper connection to her body which has translated into a more creative choreography in her dance. She is currently teaching yoga classes at Inner Spirit.
