Elaine Spielberg is a Columbus, Ohio native and has been active in the dance community for many years, both as a student and a teacher.

In 2003, Ms. Spielberg graduated from The Ohio State University Honors program with a Bachelor of Science in psychology and a minor in dance. Ms. Spielberg has coached talented dancers for the Youth America Grand Prix, taught at local summer intensives and created a pre-professional ballet troupe, Ballet Allongé. Recently, Ms. Spielberg received certification through the American Ballet Theatre Training Curriculum for young dancers.

Ms. Spielberg received her early training from Shir Lee Wu at the Columbus Youth Ballet and various summer intensives, such as the School of American Ballet and American Ballet Theatre. She moved to Virginia in 1997 to dance for the Richmond Ballet where she performed classical and contemporary repertoire, including Giselle, Swan Lake, Outside One and Schubert’s Soliloquy.

I teach because it’s my nature to give- to impart knowledge, understanding, and the gift of dancing. To share with others the love of learning about this art form, brings me immense joy.
