All About Erick Hawkins

Erick Hawkins had a ballet background, though die to injuries in his knees and spine the gentle ballet movements were not working for him. He wanted to continued dancing so he started moving away from ballet and onto a new type of dance, modern. Since Hawkins couldn't fully dance on his injuries, he started studying human anatomy. This helped him develop new ways to move the body. He wanted the movements to feel normal to his students.
