Eric Tamm

A native of San Francisco, Eric began his dance training with tap and jazz. His ballet training began at age 14 at the Irine Fokine School of Ballet (2000-2003). After further training with American Ballet Theatre’s Studio Company (2004-2007), he was invited to join the main company (corps de ballet) in 2007. Eric designated a portion of his Fellowship funds for acting lessons, which enabled him to step back from the technique of ballet and delve more deeply into the emotions and mannerisms of the characters he portrays.  He also created a dance film, titled  On a Grass Field, which had its premiere at the 2014 Chain New York City Film Festival.  With three former dance colleagues, Eric founded Ballet Mentor, a new online mentorship program for dancers.
