RS 2016 – Meet #5 – Erinn/ Like What We Do?!

Now, meet Erinn Liebhard, RS Artistic Director. She has a piece in the show, but also performs, produces, production manages and helps curate it! She is immensely proud of what this project has grown into from it’s humble beginnings eight years ago, and is looking forward to offering another great production this year!
Erinn Liebhard | (BFA University of Minnesota, MFA University of Colorado Boulder) is a dance artist that makes opportunities for people to experience the embodiment of music, with a specialty in jazz and the American vernacular and efforts focused on teaching, performance and scholarship. An active educator, she has a wide array of experience in settings as varied as private studios, public education programs and colleges, and is currently on faculty at Winona State University and is a Teaching Artist for the Cowles Center for Dance and the Performing Arts (MN). Liebhard is the Artistic Director of Rhythmically Speaking, and her choreography has been presented across the U.S. and Canada. She has worked with music-driven movement creatives as varied as hip-hop artist Rennie Harris and Appalachian clogging company the Wild Goose Chase Cloggers (and many in between!), and flexes her physical comedy muscles by playing “Nerdette” as a part of Saint Paul Saints Baseball’s Entertainment Team. Erinn is grateful her career allows her to inspire and organize individuals and communities through the embodiment of music.
Join Erinn and all the other awesome artists of RS 2016 for their production running August 18 – 20 at the Southern Theater in Minneapolis!
