Eleanor has spent nearly her lifetime in studios full of young girls (and a number of guys) who are dreaming big dreams. Discovering and nurturing each one’s unique gifts brings Eleanor endless joy. A BFA from North Carolina School of the Arts and dancing professionally with North Carolina Dance Theatre, La Compangie de Danse Entre-Six, and the Atlanta Ballet were the backstage entrance to her career in developing and directing dance programs and refining the twirling that begins in the kitchen of all dancers. Eleanor loves to teach all ages and levels of ballet. Encouraging her dancers to become the very best people they can be never.gets.old.
Eleanor has spent years searching for a hobby and may have finally found one. She is delighted that two little loves call her Grandmarmee.
