Elisabeth began her dance training at Academy of Dance in Yankton, South Dakota under the direction of Dorota Dannenbring. While in high school she performed lead roles in classical ballets such as Snow Queen and Sugar Plum in the Nutcracker and Candor Fairy in Sleeping Beauty. She also attended intensives at Ballet Magnificat, Colorado Ballet, Ballet 5:8 and American Ballet Theater.
Upon high school graduation, Elisabeth trained under Julianna Slager, Brette Benedict, and Antonio Rosario at Ballet 5:8. She performed many roles with both the school and the company during her time there. Her roles varied from classical to contemporary with one of her most memorable being Strangers and Angels from Julianna Slager’s Compass.
She is humbled by God's direction and leading in her life and is excited to join in Magnum Opus’ vision for the 2019/20 season!
