Elena Olshin

Elena, a native of Rockville, Maryland, began dancing at the age of four. She graduated from the Akhmedova Ballet Academy, where she trained for four years under the direction of Jacqueline Akhmedova. Elena attended summer intensives at the Kirov Academy of Ballet, The Bolshoi Ballet, The Rock School, and Ballet West. Elena participated in the Kennedy Center Masterclass Series for two years and also competed at the Youth American Grand Prix semi-finals and New York City Finals, and as a soloist at the Tanzolymp Dance Festival in Berlin, Germany. Elena is very excited to be starting her fourth season with First State Ballet Theatre, and has very much enjoyed dancing roles such as the Fairy of Songbirds in The Sleeping Beauty, and Cupid in Don Quixote.
