Elyse was one of Dancer's Gallery's very first students starting at the young age of 3. She has been with Christie since the day the doors opened and has gained most of her training under their incredible faculty. She went on to study Dance and Exercise Science at The Florida State University and then relocated to Savannah, Ga to complete her degree in Rehabilitation Science. In Savannah, Elyse began her career as a dance instructor and choreographer and she never looked back since. Elyse always wanted to be like Ms. Christie growing up and that has finally become a reality as she is now the Owner and Artistic Director of The STUDIO located in Savannah, GA. She cannot thank Dancer's Gallery enough for their long term support and mentorship and hopes to keep spreading the love of dance to her students and inspiring them, as Dancer's Gallery did for her. .

I'm super busy with modeling, dance, and acting. If it wasn't for your Ms. Christie I would not have gotten into the schools I've gotten into, I would not have booked the gigs I've booked, I would not be making the money I make. All this today I feel so blessed to say I danced for your company and learned from some of the best dancers in the world. Thanks for taking a gamble on me. I've always thought about the studio and I'm forever grateful to you and wish you the best! To you and your family!!
I am currently a yoga teacher and artist. I work with an art collective in Hallandale called Life and Matter and our goal is to spread the knowledge of the healing arts and holistic living while bringing the community together. We do expressive arts workshops in art therapy, dance/movement therapy, play therapy, poetry, all sorts of stuff. I am also studying ecopsychology and ethnobotany with hopes of finding different ways in which we can heal human relationships with the environment and live a spiritual and sustainable life. I travel whenever I get the chance! I danced at Dancer's Gallery for a solid 10 years, 1996-2006 and miss it everyday!
I danced at Dancer's Gallery for approximately 6 years and was a part of company for like 2 or 3 years. Although I don't currently take dance classes or am part of a dance club, I have still cultivated many talents I developed over the years at Dancer's Gallery. Aside from dancing, I still sing, play the piano and the guitar; music and rhythm continues to be my passion. As of right now, I am a pre-professinal biology student at the University of Florida on a pre-dental track. I will be graduating with my bachelor's in December of 2018, time flies! The experiences and memories that Dancer's Gallery has left me with, will forever be in my heart. To this day I will occasionally still run into old dance mates when I am in South Florida, that may or may not recognize me.
I danced at Dancer's Gallery from the age of 2 to around the age of 16, ranging in everything from lyrical to belly dancing. Today, I am a Florida State University Alumni. I am currently applying to medical school and hope to begin studying sometime this year.
I danced at Dancer's Gallery from the time I was in first grade until I graduated from high school in 2016. It gave me a chance to try a whole range of styles that allowed me to be shaped into the dancer that I am today. I am currently in my Freshman year attending Florida State University. I continue to dance at FSU where I am taking a contemporary dance class and hope to take more in the future. I also participate in other small dance clubs on campus, and I hope to continue to dance and progress as much as I possibly can while I am up here for my studies.
I began dancing at Dancer's Gallery at the age of 3 and instantly loved it. Over the past 16 years I have shared countless memories with fellow dancers and staff members which are truly unforgettable. My instructors, including Miss Christie, taught me not only how to dance but how to balance academics and extra curricular activities and the importance of time management at a young age. They always encouraged my progression in dance but always pushed for my academic success. I am now double majoring at the University of Florida and continue to dance through several of the school's organizations in my spare time.
