Erik Linder and Shelly Meshkausk

2019 US National Ballroom Champions


Erik and Shelly have developed an amazing partnership that is reflected in their unique expression and passion for dance. Erik is from Washington and Shelly is from Massachusetts. The long distance wasn’t going to stop their love of dancing with each other which meant that they would have had to travel between the two states every 2-3 weeks to train together and go to school in addition to traveling to competitions in the US and internationally.


Shelly grew up with dancing in her family and excelled from a very young age. With multiple national titles and as national finalist she has won many accolades. Shelly also teaches dance and does hair and makeup for dance competitors.


Erik started dancing at the age of 4 and has been going strong ever since. Some of his many past achievements include 2015 Under 16 Ballroom World Champion, 5th in Junior Blackpool Latin, numerous national titles, semi finalist on America’s Got Talent and guest dancer on Dancing With The Stars and The Oprah Show.


Erik and Shelly have started EIRIKER.COM a business making handmade bracelets which are worn by fans around the world. They are also brand ambassadors for AIDA, Shok Shop and RS Atelier.


With all of the achievements in their dancing, the best part for Erik and Shelly is the joy they have for dancing together and sharing that joy with others.
