Eleanor Bittel began dancing under the instruction of Lorenza Manara Marchi in the Cecchetti method of classical ballet from the ages of 13 to 18 years old. At the age of 14, she started training with Miss Lorenza to be a ballet teacher alongside her technique and performance training.
In recent years, Eleanor has attended several dance conferences and intensives including Cecchetti Council of America (CCA) and Artists Simply Human (ASH). She has had the privilege of learning from celebrity choreographers Galen Hooks, Desmond Richardson, and Parris Goebel.
In addition to classical ballet, Eleanor is trained in jazz, modern, contemporary, and lyrical. She is now on the staff at Italia Performing Arts, teaching Ballet and Modern & Jazz.
