Local natives and regulars in the Rockford theatre community, Erin and Christopher Brady are humbled and ecstatic to be a part of Dancing with the Rockford Stars! Married for 15 years, parents to the wonderful Brady sisters, Ophelia and Imogen, and family adventurers, Erin and Chris love to camp – specifically at the national parks – sing, act, and are known to have regular kitchen dance parties with their girls and their pets, Mabel and Dugan.
Chris has been the artistic director at Starlight Theatre at Rock Valley College for the last two seasons, where he lives his best life by directing the talented theatrical artists of the Rockford area, and before that, he and Erin shared the Starlight stage on multiple occasions. Erin rocks the scene part-time as a hairstylist, and full-time living her passion as a mother and wife to her darling family and husband. Erin also co-chairs the Northern Illinois 100 Women Who Care, a vibrant community of women dedicated to making an impact for charities right here in our local region. Chris and Erin are also Co-founders of the (Usual) Suspects, an original Rockford theatrical troupe, they have been active in the arts scene here for the last 20+ years, and they share a pride for their community and enjoy being involved in it.
Erin and Chris are honored to dance for such a noble cause in Rockford Counseling Services. The guidance they have provided for those in need in our community is priceless, but it comes at a cost so let’s all dance our collective tushies off to keep them strong!
