Erica Jo Vibar Sherwood

Dancer 2021.

Erica Jo Vibar Sherwood is a queer, mixed Midwest Chicana with several generations of family connections to Mnisota Makoce. A community trained dance artist, Erica Jo’s movement is rooted in the teachings of her former Mexica Danza group, Kalpulli Yaocenoxtli, the Street and Club dance scene of the Twin Cities, and Yorchha. Her artistry is her healing as it centers stories of solidarity, ancestral wisdom, and a deeper return to self. Erica Jo is honored to share and grow in the work of Ananya Dance Theatre. She is deeply grateful to her ancestors, guides and mentors, and her chosen and blood families for their deep love and support.
