Elisa is passionate about bringing 5Rhythms® to people who crave and want more movement and self-expression in their everyday lives. She has been dancing since the age of 5, dipping her toes into as many movement practices as she could find (ballet, contemporary, South African gumboot dancing, hula hoop, yoga, ecstatic dance) and now the 5Rhythms, since 2002. In recent years, Elisa founded and co-directed Create-Move-Connect, a community-based dance project to transform improvisation into choreography and performance. Elisa offers recreation and expressive arts facilitation for individuals and groups and performs and teaches with Truly Connecting Playback Theatre.
“I live and work in a big city context where I try to connect hearts to hearts and bring embodied presence into daily life.”
Elisa teaches 5Rhythms® waves classes Dynamic Waves with Elisa — Sundays on the first and third Sunday of each month, at Dovercourt House, from 2:30 – 4:30 p.m.
Elisa is a certified and accredited member of the 5Rhythms Teachers Association. All class and workshop hours with Elisa count towards 5Rhythms Teacher Training prerequisites.
