Elaine began dancing at age 8 at a local studio in her hometown outside of Cleveland, Ohio where she gained experience in contemporary, jazz, ballet, modern, and hip-hop. Elaine graduated from Cornell University in 2015 with a B.S. in Interior Design and a concentration in Performing Arts.  While at Cornell, she danced and choreographed with two student groups, and choreographed a modern adaption of Paul Sartre’s “No Exit” and a theatrical production of the Rocky Horror Picture Show.  She now works as a Project Designer for OTJ Architects. This is her fourth season of DanceWorks NYC, and third season choreographing. She is grateful to be given the incredibly rewarding opportunity to choreograph for this amazing community.
