Erika Hebron

Erika Hebron grew up just outside of St. Louis in O’Fallon, Missouri with her parents and four younger sisters. She began dancing at the age of three, alongside being a competitive gymnast. She happened to be quite a bit taller than the rest of her teammates, despite being the youngest, and it eventually worked against her. She decided to spend more time at the dance studio and the rest is basically history. Erika trained in ballet, tap, jazz, pointe, and acrobatics at the Performing Arts Centre, as well as traveling to conventions and competitions to train. She was lucky enough to perform at The Muny in St. Louis, working alongside professional actors throughout her childhood and teenage years. She then went on to attend and graduate Magna Cum Laude from Oklahoma City University where she received her Bachelor of Performing Arts in Dance Performance.  After finishing school, Erika went on to compete in the Miss Missouri Pageant and represented her home state as Miss Missouri at the Miss America Pageant in 2011.

She then traded the stilettos for Laducas and moved to New York City, where she is currently based. Erika’s first big job was the North American Tour of West Side Story.  She has also performed in the opening number of the Rose Parade with Kristin Chenoweth, at the Jerry Lewis MDA Telethon in Las Vegas, and at many regional theaters around the country. Some her favorite credits include The Producers, Damn Yankees, The Will Rogers Follies, and Crazy for You.

In addition to performing, Erika enjoys long walks, swimming, and yoga. She loves to bake thanks to her mom and grandma and does a little of everything from cookies, to cupcakes, and yummy caramel brownies. She is also a huge sports fan! Her favorite way to relax is hang out with friends while cheering on the St. Louis Cardinals and St. Louis Blues!
