Eliza has had the pleasure of performing for Natalie Johnson Dance, Molly Hess Dance Projects, Grant Jacoby and Dancers, and Catherine Siller. Her choreographic works-which display strong inventive movement, pedestrian gestures, and an undeniably unique sense of humor- have been presented in Massachusetts, Maryland, Maine, Rhode Island, and Arezzo, Italy. Her driving question when creating new work is "how can I create serious art that does not take itself seriously?"

 

Eliza is also a passionate arts administrator and served as Studio Manager at Green Street Studios for 2 wonderful years and currently serves as the Associate Director of Operations and Events for Dunamis, a nonprofit committed to providing professional development opportunities for emerging artists and arts managers of color in Boston. When she is not dancing you can find Eliza watching reality television, thrift shopping, exploring the outdoors, and making wacky jewelry.
