Louisa Erlich was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. At age three, she began taking dance lessons in tap, jazz, and ballet. When she was five, she moved to Baltimore, Maryland, where she continued her dance training. She was accepted into the Peabody Children's Chorus, and studied violin at the Peabody Institute for seven years.
Louisa's love for music and dance ignited her transition into musical theater. She performed in musicals around the Baltimore area, and began traveling to New York City to work with a vocal coach/study acting. She signed with a local talent agent and started doing commercial, voiceover and film work.
In High School Louisa moved to New York where she attended the Professional Children's School. She continued her training, and began auditioning and working on various film projects. Later Louisa graduated from The New School where she studied Screenwriting, Screen Studies, and Psychology. She then completed a graduate level television writing program at Columbia University.
Since then Louisa has several pilots and one full-length play in development, while she also continues her acting pursuits. Her most recent project is a film directed by Matt Servitto (The Sopranos) , filming October 2020, where she will be playing one of the lead roles.
Louisa also continues to study acting at The Barrow Group under Seth Barrish, and frequently performs in cabarets with Opera New York around Manhattan.
