Elaine Colaneri

Elaine Colaneri is the founder of the Carousel Dance Studio and the Modern Jazz Dance Company Center of the Arts. Elaine began studying dance at a very early age and by the time she was a young teen, her love for dance had become a passion that changed her life. One of Elaine's first instructors and the biggest influence in her life was Doris Holloway, who exposed her to some of the greatest instructors of our time. Elaine began studying in New York City with tap legend, Henry LeTang and continued studying with him for over 25 years, traveling back and forth to New York on a regular basis, in addition to bringing him to RI to conduct workshops for her students.

Elaine studied with other tap talents such as Leon Collins, Jerry Ames, Mary Jane Brown, Josh Hilberman and Diane Walker, just to name a few.

Elaine's jazz background is second to none. She studied in New York City with such amazing choreographers as Matt Mattox, Gus Giordano, Frank Hatchett, Ron Forella, John Mederios, Nat Horne, JoJo Smith, Barry Weiss, Jay Norman (an origianl cast member of West Side Story), and Peter Gennaro, choreographer of the original productions of Annie. These outstanding dancers visited Elaine's studio in RI on several occasion to conduct workshops for her students.

Elaine founded the Modern Jazz Dance Company in 1972. The Company frequented New York City with Elaine where the dancers studied with many of the great instructors that Elaine had the opportunity to study with. Several of her dancers have gone on to become professional dancers.

Elaine was an adjunct instructor at RI College for several years where she taught tap. She choreographed the RI College productions of Anything Goes, The Pajama Game, Mama, Gypsy, My Fair Lady and The King and I. Other local theatre choreography includes Chicago and Pippin.

Elaine continues to study, attends many dance conventions and is constantly seeking new talent to learn from or share her knowledge with. She is a life-long member of Dance Educators of America and a member of the Dance Alliance of Rhode Island.
