Dancers’ 10-year memories: For Erin, it’s all about community


Welcome to the latest in our new series of videos! To help celebrate our next decade of dance, we’ve asked American Midwest Ballet dancers to share some of their favorite memories from the company’s first ten seasons.

Audiences know Erin Alarcón for her performances in roles such as the Sugar Plum Fairy in The Nutcracker, Odette in Swan Lake, and the title role in Giselle. She also is recognized as a choreographer of short ballets such as One in Three and Bricolage, as well as her award-winning full-length The Wizard of Oz.

When Erin looks back at AMB’s first decade, what she thinks of most are relationships:

“Over the last ten seasons I’ve loved becoming a member of the AMB community. I’ve formed lasting friendships with not only the dancers but also the artistic staff, production team, costume department, guild and our supporters. This is a team of individuals whose kindness and support have been instrumental in my growth as a person and an artist over the last decade.”
