Erin Rees, Theatre Artist

Erin is an experienced fiber artist, teacher, and performance artist in the New York city area. She has taught beginner through intermediate knitting at Bedford Stuyvesant Collegiate Charter school in Brooklyn since 2010. As a performance artist, Erin has experience in Commedia Dell’Arte, modern, jazz, and ballet dance, and bell canto, classical, and contemporary musical theater music. Erin has studied internationally at the Accademia dell’Arte in Arezzo, Italy and at The Aegean Center for Fine Arts in Greece. When Erin is not auditioning or working on a performance project, she actively creates knit and crochet patterns which are available for sale on Etsy, Ravelry, and Craftsy.


Erin is currently assisting CWP Teaching Artists Bianca Garcia & Scott Lilly at PS279 in the Bronx. The class is in the process of writing and recording a class song and the students have been actively involved in learning how to personify objects as well as how to use actions to describe daily life in their city.
