Coaching with Erin Howden

Over the years, Erin has not only developed into an outstanding choreographer, sought by both men’s and women’s choruses all over the world, she has also become a coach of great distinction in the barbershop world, as well as a member of SAI’s International Teaching Faculty. 

Erin developed a Visual Leadership Program for Sweet Adelines, running weekend workshops for chorus leaders – many of whom had travelled thousands of miles from other countries to attend. 

Erin, like her Mom, June Dale, has helped changed the face of SAI – especially in the area of performance and visualization. As Erin helped to develop their world-renowned ‘themed’ performances, North Metro members became ‘News Boys, Toy Soldiers, Sailors, Martians, Gold Miners, and Chimney Sweeps, to name a few! 

As a result of her vision and forward-thinking, North Metro has become recognized for ‘pushing the envelope!’ and this has played a significant part in our four gold medal wins.

We welcome Erin to Lions Gate and look forward to working with our sister from the east ;)
