Peugh. Since training at SHSU, Elena had the opportunity to study abroad with The Dance Italia Program out of Lucca, Italy. There, Elena took daily classes in Counter Technique with Elita Cannata and Gaga classes and Repertory with Chisato Ohno (Batsheva Dance Company). Additionally, Elena has worked under Elijah Alhaji Gibson (SHSU) who is a long-standing company member with The Gus Giordano Company, where Elena had the opportunity to train as a scholarship student with their College Program in Chicago, IL.  Most recently she has performed in The Dance Gallery Festival in NYC, The Barnstorm Dance Fest in Houston, TX, the American College Dance Association in Beaumont, TX, and NobleMotion Dance in their show “Catapult” in Houston, TX. Upcoming, Elena will join The Axis Connect, (Barton Movement) Program out of Los Angeles, where she will study under the guidance of many artists as she travels from Los Angeles to New York City. Currently, Elena is dancing for The Social Movement, under the instruction of Elijah Alhaji Gibson out of Houston TX.

Along with her passion for performing, Elena is also a passionate teacher and has been teaching in studios around Texas for five years now. Recently, her choreography has been featured in the Annual Dance to Breath Benefit Concert, raising money for Cystic Fibrosis in Austin, TX. And her work as an undergraduate student at SHSU was nominated as a candidate to perform at The American College Dance Association in 2018.
