Spring Semester Early Registration!

D & J Dance Studio is now offering early registration for the Spring Semester!

Elena Rezai grew up in Hollister, CA, and has been dancing since the age of 4. She received her BA in Dance from the University of California, Irvine, and went on to receive her MA in Dance/Movement Therapy & Counseling from Columbia College Chicago.

She has had the pleasure of training with many talented choreographers and performers including former Alvin Ailey principal dancer Dereque Whiturs, Stephanie Powell, Donald McKayle, and Kristina Fluty, along with many others. Although she grew up studying ballet, Elena enjoys many styles of dance, including modern/contemporary, jazz, hip hop and African dance, and her work as a Dance Therapist has helped her to use dance as a tool for healing and expression. She has also had the pleasure of directing and choreographing for the Godinez Fundamental High School Dance Company in Santa Ana, CA, and currently teaches at Break the Barriers. Her hope is to help make dance accessible to as many people as possible, and spread the unifying and joyful influence of dance.
