Erin Pick



Erin started dancing at an early age learning ballet, tap, jazz and hula as well as ballroom from her mother, professional ballroom dancer, Rhona Pick and her professional partner Roy Hinton. Rhona and Roy would go on to open up the Hinton Pick School of Ballroom Dancing in San Francisco, the predecessor to the Pick School of Ballroom Dancing.

A champion dancer in both the ballroom and Latin divisions, Erin took her first exams with ISTD at the age of eight. She continued dancing and competing in youth competitions until going to college to complete her bachelors degree. After graduation, Erin worked briefly in an office and realized this was not the right work for her and promptly returned to the dance world.


Erin studied in England for her first professional exam and then returned to San Francisco to teach and continue her studies for her remaining professional exams with the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing (licentiate) and with the US Terpsicore Association (associate).

In addition to competing professionally in both the standard and Latin divisions and winning rising star and finalist titles in standard and rising star finalist titles in Latin, Erin competed in the pro/am divisions with her students in standard, Latin, rhythm and smooth categories. She currently competes in the Standard Pro/Am Category with her students.

The Pick School of Dancing studio has been awarded the Isadora Duncan award for outstanding achievement and San Francisco's Best of Bay award. Erin enjoys teaching students of all levels and is devoted to giving high quality lessons at affordable prices.
