Erin Finn, dance

Erin Finn, a Louisville native and 2013 graduate of the WKU Honors College has been using her BA and research to dance onto the West Coast. She performed first with WKU students and faculty for The Oregon Shakespeare Festival’s Green Show, alongside current WKU seniors, Courtney Martin and Carrie Farmer, in REVEAL! And TRANSCEND! by WKU faculty member and choreographer, Lisa D. Long. Audiences numbered up to 850 patrons per night and received the performances graciously.

Next up for Erin is a performance of her solo from REVEAL! At the 7th Annual MixMatch Dance Festival, giving this Honors College alum national reach. The Los Angeles, CA festival will be held in the Miles Memorial Playhouse includes 70 dancers and 50 choreographers from all over the United States. While in LA, Erin has also had the opportunity to take company class with two international dance companies, Diavolo Dance Theater and Bodytraffic, showing that learning doesn’t stop at graduation.
