Name: Erica Kaplan

Nickname: Girly Girl

Years on the team: 2010-current. I am a senior, this is my fourth year, and I am a captain.

Dance Experience: I have been dancing for 19 years (since age 2). I have been trained in tap, jazz, lyrical, modern, ballet, hip-hop, contemporary, pointe, and many others. I have competed since the age of four as well as danced with the Radio City Rockettes. I have also won several dance scholarships around the state of Florida.

Hometown: Lake Worth, FL

Major: Elementary Education

Career Goal: To teach Kindergarten or First Grade and also be on a pro dance team, such as the New Orleans Hornets or Orlando Magic, or dance at Disney World.

Lifetime Goal: Make an impact on as many people's lives!

Favorite Types of Music: Anything I can dance to!

Favorite Movies: Dirty Dancing, Mrs. Doubtfire, and The Hunger Games... Pretty much anything girly, funny, or Disney.

Favorite Books: Not a big fan of reading but love reading to children in my classroom.

Favorite Dessert: McDonald's M&M McFlurry.

Hobbies: Of course my favorite one is dancing, but some others are shopping, going to Disney, and fishing.

Biggest Pet Peeve: When someone does not tell the truth.

People of Influence: I would definitely say that my mom is my biggest role model. She is always there for me and pushes me to my best potential. My other role models would be the teachers that I follow for my practicum now because I will have my own classroom in less than one year!

Dream Vacation: Italy or Spain

Favorite Quote: "Great dancers are not great because of their technique, they are great because of their passion." -Martha Graham

One Thing Most People Don't Know About Me: I may be girly, but I like to fish.
