Elena is 14 years old and this is her second year with Ballet Theatre Queensland. Elena started dance at Kick Dance & Arts in Bulimba, enjoying ballet extension opportunities at Queensland Ballet Academy Associate Program and Claudia Dean Coaching. She performed in Queensland Ballet’s 2018 production of Cinderella and is looking forward to starting full-time training at the Queensland Ballet Academy in 2021. She was unable to take up her 2020 YAGP scholarships at the Dutch National Ballet Academy and John Cranko Schule because of the global pandemic but is excited for the opportunity to perform on stage at QPAC.
