EVERYONE HAD TO START SOMEWHERE – THE GROWING UP YEARS:
Elisa still expects the best from the entire dance company, but she has softened her edges a bit since childhood. When she was only three years old, Elisa’s dance class was scheduled to perform for the parentsIF all the dancers behaved in practice. When one young dancer failed to follow the rules, the entire class lost that privilege. Angered and in-charge, Elisa promptly reprimanded the unruly classmate with a quick smack! Unfortunately, the parents still didn’t get to see the performance.
Elisa’s dance took her to Germany on two separate occasions, where she competed and received a gold medal for group dance and the silver medal for a duet performance at the World Dance Championship.
