Eriana McCarley started dancing when she was 10 years old. Her early training included modern dance and hip-hop, and she later joined the dancers with her marching band in high school. While at George Mason Eriana minored in dance and was part of their hip hop dance team, Urbanknowlogy, where she eventually became the Artistic Director. Being in Urbanknowlogy allowed Eriana to choreograph and compete in competitions such as Prelude, Rip the Floor, and ECDC. Eriana currently is an Intern at Capitol Movement where she assists the director of the CMI Kidz as well as volunteers in outreach programs to teach after school classes at Garrison Elementary and Creative Minds International Public Charter School.
