Eleanor started dancing at age 3 at Fairytale Ballet and Gus Giordano Dance School in Evanston. When Gus Giordano Dance School relocated to Andersonville, she took classes at Dance Center Evanston and began to learn the fundamentals of ballet. Her passion for dance grew further when she trained with RonnStewart and Sarah Goldstone at Foster Dance Studio, where she developed technique in jazz, modern, contemporary, ballet, and pointe. During her five years at the studio, Eleanor also worked closely with David Maurice, Lucas Segovia, Jana Bennett, Terence Marling, and Graca Sales. As an Evanston Township High School freshman, she performed with upperclassmen in YAMO 2019, a student-run sketch comedy show with dance that is known for its long history and high-quality productions.
Eleanor spent recent summers taking Foster Dance Studio’s dance intensives and was accepted at Interlochen Arts Camp before it went virtual in summer 2020. She plans to attend Interlochen this summer if COVID-19 conditions permit.
Eleanor looks forward to working with Nick Pupillo, Laura Wade, and Visceral Studio Company and growing as a dancer and human being.
