Mini Bio (1)

Eliana Alexander was born in Mexico City. Her parents, Elias and Ana Rosa chose her name by using the first half of theirs, thus making her name very unique. Her father was an industrial engineer who worked for the US government constructing and improving towns all over South and Central America. Eliana traveled with her parents to countries such as Paraguay, Guatemala, Brazil, Bolivia, Chile, and Argentina. Eliana mastered the Spanish language in five dialects while becoming fluent in English. Her love for classic films inspired her to perform. Although Eliana is multi-talented, her passion lies in singing, dancing and acting. After moving to Los Angeles in her early teens she started singing lead in a band three to four nights a week while attending high school. Her remarkable talent and 4-octave range soon propelled the angelic vocalist to Japan as a solo artist. Upon returning to LA, she auditioned for a musical that ignited all of her passions. She pursued both dance and acting simultaneously with the utmost desire to be the best. Eliana's uncompromising will to be the best drove her to open EDGE performing arts center, Kids Dance LA and LA Dance Force. With Eliana at the helm, all three entities became world-renown for training top-notch dancers and choreographers. Although she has since moved on from the dance industry, her legacy continues to touch lives around the world. Eliana's intoxicating performance on camera has earned her an Alma award and her enchanting choreography on stage helped earn Imagen awards for both Paquito's Christmas and Veteranos. Throughout her life, Eliana has maintained a simple motto "class and elegance." Whether Eliana is on stage as a triple threat or using her genuine creative genius to compose, choreograph, direct, produce or write it is her love for the performing arts coupled with the support of her husband John and her courage to follow her dreams that has enabled her to succeed in everything she does.
