Eleanor began her Ballet training with Jeanette du Fray in Surrey, and completed her vocational training at the Royal Academy of Dance, London, under the instruction of June Mitchell. After receiving a dance/academic scholarship to Hurst Lodge School in Ascot aged 11, Eleanor completed a Higher National Diploma and BA (Hons) Music at Surrey through The Academy of Contemporary Music.

As a post graduate researcher, Eleanor furthered her Drama educational practices with a PgCert Drama Education at Middlesex University, and was among the first students in the world to complete the Diploma in Dance Teaching Studies at The Royal Academy of Dance.
Eleanor has been teaching the graded and vocational Ballet syllabi of the Royal Academy of Dance for the past 11 years, and teaches Ballet and LAMDA Drama in some of the UK’s most prestigious schools in Surrey and Hampshire, achieving a 100% pass rate with all Ballet and Drama candidates.
“I have an immense passion for teaching, and feel privileged to have such an enriching career. Through my teaching, I strive to make the studio a fully inclusive, inspirational environment in which students can develop and have their talents nurtured. Continued professional development is critical in the evolving world of performing arts education. I recognise and embrace the importance of reflecting upon current teaching strategies and adapting to the needs of students, and I am a great advocate of Dance and Drama in a child development capacity.”
