Erica Robinson is a seasoned professional speaker, as well as a performer and a recognized leader in America's clog dancing community. She is founder and director of the award-winning Phoenix Clogging & Irish Step Dance Entertainers, a dancer with the competitive clogging team TNC Elite which has been featured on America's Got Talent, the 2012 Miss American Clogger, a renowned choreographer for clog dance teams across the country, a member of Clogging Champions of America's 2015 All Pro Team, 2014 "MVP" and a mentor in Clogging Champions of America's Youth Leadership Council.
Erica's dance talent has presented her with many performance opportunities, including daily shows in the summers of her teen years at Silver Dollar City in Branson, performing on the live national television program Artistgalla in Oslo, Norway, daily shows at The Carolina Opry, performing live with TNC Elite on the hit TV show America's Got Talent, a TNC Elite tour through Amsterdam and Czech Republic where they showcased American-style clog dancing and taught clogging workshops, and a performance with Phoenix as a featured act on the live telecast of the 2015 National Cherry Blossom Festival Parade in Washington, D.C.
As the 2012 Miss American Clogger, Erica competed with 37 other young ladies over a three-day period to win the top title of Overall Queen, as well as Overall Talent Winner, Best Evening Gown, and Best Interview. At a young age, Erica also held the the title of "Atlanta's Most Talented Christian Kid."
Erica has appeared on the television program "Friends & Neighbors" where her sweet spirit and delightful personality shone brightly as she danced and spoke about clogging before an international viewing audience. Erica has also appeared on the national television special "Women in Ministry," and has been featured in the national Christian youth magazine, On Course.
When she is not teaching dance class, competing, or performing on professional stages, Erica enjoys performing for church and community groups a solo dance show which includes the lore of the history of clogging and Irish step dance. She is always delighted to visit with audience members following her performances.
Erica's hard work and her many gifts and talents were rewarded by The Shirley & Billy Weir Foundation which chose her as the sole recipient of the Foundation's 2009 four-year, full scholarship to the college of her choice. In 2014, Erica graduated with highest honors from Georgia Institute of Technology.

"Erica Robinson performed for our community, Morningside Assisted Living of Athens. The residents loved her and cheered her on as she clogged and performed the Irish step dance. Erica's hard work and dedication to her dancing surely shows as she performs!"
Melissa Allbritton, Program Service Director, Morningside of Athens
"Erica Robinson is a delightful young lady, very energetic and very talented as a clogger/dancer. The information she shared about clogging and specific dances was interesting, and it helped us appreciate her skills even more as we watched her. Erica meets people well, and she seemed very comfortable being in front of a fairly large group (around 100). We really enjoyed having her program."
Mary Barton, First Baptist Church, Jonesboro, Georgia
"Erica performed for Huntcliff for our St. Patrick's Day celebration. Erica was very professional and the residents enjoyed her performance with much enthusiasm. We are planning to have Erica perform again in the near future."
Bernice Mellman , Community Life Coordinator, Huntcliff Summit
"Grand Lake Gardens retirement community in Oakland, CA is an active and engaged community which hosted The Phoenix Dancers in March 2011. They were professional, appropriately costumed, well mannered and provided a wonderful Clogging and Irish Step Dance performance that energized the room and the audience for days afterwards. These energetic, friendly, and outgoing young women were a real delight to host.
"The show was fantastic and the residents enjoyed meeting all the girls so much. What really impressed me was that they were willing to be flexible with the room set up and they made it work. All of the performers came out at the end of the show to greet and personally thank the residents for attending which made such a positive impact. I wish them all the best as they spread their joy around the country with their future performances."
Scott Sebastian, Director of Programs, Grand Lake Gardens, Oakland, California
