Hi! My name is Erin Nichole Boyt and I am the Artistic Director of Version Excursion Dance in Seattle, WA. I began Version Excursion about five years ago because I had an idea for a piece of choreography. So, I did the next logical thing and....started a company. That totally made sense to a 25-year-old aspiring choreographer who was blissfully unaware how difficult it is. But, I haven't stopped since!
My roots are in a small farm town in Southwest Missouri. I moved to Seattle after graduating from the Theater program at Drury University. I have always loved film and knew that creating it would be part of my career someday. As a kid in the mid-nineties, I would use my parents' camcorder to shoot alien movies with my older brother (he was always the alien) or documentaries about ladybugs in the backyard.
However, I didn't really get involved with film on a professional level until I moved to Seattle. I wanted to expand my experience as a choreographer and explore media other than stage. So I started networking with local filmmakers. And the rest, as they say, is history.
My goals are to choreograph for music videos and feature films and to continue honing the craft of directing.
