Dancer, teacher and current resident of The Schermerhorn.
Dancer Erin Moore was determined to build a career in New York City. But couch-surfing, bouncing from sublet to sublet, and at one point even enduring the commute from Philadelphia to auditions in Manhattan, was enough to put even the most committed artist to the test.
The Schermerhorn allowed Erin to establish a stable, affordable home base among a community of fellow artists and strivers in the heart of Downtown Brooklyn. She quickly landed a teaching gig with Brooklyn Ballet’s Elevate program, working with second graders from two public schools in Brooklyn. Next, an open-call audition took Erin to Washington, D.C., where she performed alongside the legendary Bernadette Peters in a revival of Sondheim’s Follies. When the hit show transferred to Broadway, Erin was delighted to be back in her cozy apartment at the Schermerhorn, where she enjoys an easy A-train commute to her dressing room at the Marquis Theater.
