Nikki Erickson - Kearney's Dancing with the Stars 2

Nikki Erickson is a former cheerleader, now a mom to five – six if you count husband Josh – and she took dance lessons all through grade school. She says dancing is a hobby for her and Josh, but few see them outside of their kitchen, dancing while making dinner. Nikki’s involvement in the community includes Leadership Kearney, Kearney Area Chamber of Commerce Envoys, and a local nonprofit board. She often speaks to groups about faith and family. She says she believes dancing is for everyone – it’s all about moving and having fun! Her kids are Cali, Nina, Chaz, Emry and Ivey.  

What words might someone use to describe your dancing: “Like no one’s watching.”

Favorite dance style: Country

Least favorite dance style: “Every style is fun – especially with a dance partner.”

Go-to dance move: “have you ever watched the movie ‘Hitch?’ I’m not as smooth as Albert Brennaman or Allegra Cole, but I try!”

Song that will absolutely get you on the dance floor: “Norah Jones songs get me every time, but I always love a fast swing dance like ‘Fishin in the Dark’ by Nitty Gritty Dirt Band.”

Favorite dance partner: “When I was 15, I met a boy at a school dance. I like dancing with him so much, I later decided to marry him. He’s been my favorite ever since.”

Why are you participating in KDWTS: “Occasionally I try to leave my comfort zone and try new things. This experience will probably land at the top of that list of crazy ideas!”

Favorite memory involving dancing: “Dancing with my daddy as a young girl to songs like ‘Twist and Shout’ and ‘Rockin’ Robin’.”

Star to beat: Marsha Wilkson or coach Eighmey – “I know she’s competitive!”

Why should fans vote for you: “I have FIVE kids who are all really expecting me to bring home a trophy. We’d hate to see their sad, little disappointed faces if I don’t win. Right?”
