Eleni began dancing as a young child. Receiving her training in classical ballet, Eleni attended several nation-wide intensives, including American Ballet Theatre-Alabama, Virginia School of the Arts, and Burklyn Ballet Theatre, as well as performing internationally at the Tanzsommer Dance Festival (Austria) and the Edinburgh Festival Fringe (Scotland).

During her time at Denison, Eleni performed works by David Parsons, Doris Humphrey, George Balanchine, among others, as well as original creations by Molly Shanahan and Gus Solomons, Jr.
Since joining Contradiction Dance in 2010, Eleni has performed in original CD works, including The Disorder of Things, The Present, The Gift, and Objects of Hope. Outside of her dance adventures, Eleni works as an arts administrator at Imagination Stage.
