Elana Jaroff has utilized the ins and outs of the entertainment business by taking her performance career seriously as an important part of her life exploration, and embracing each opportunity with focused intention and a constant smile, she has learned to enjoy the adventure. Her mission is to share the love of the dance and spread it’s educational purpose.
This positive, inclusive philosophy is reflected in her work as a dancer and choreographer, particularly in the way she interweaves styles, influences and energies into her own form from her upbringing in Long Island and Manhattan.
She has brought her unique dance style to audiences at such legendary NYC venues as Hammerstein Ballroom, Highline Ballroom and Lincoln Center. She’s recently had the honor to perform at different festivals and events with The Human Experience, Phutureprimitive, Kaminanda and Andreilien and more.
Elana formed a dance crew, ‘The nerd-E Crew’ in 2011, as a way to further develop her own choreography and performance approach. This group has blossomed more beautifully than she originally imagined and has had the honor of supporting the creative festival community.
