BIOGRAPHY

Eleanor is a British/American Singer, Musician, Actress and Dancer based in London.

Eleanor was born near Boston, USA, spent childhood years in Brazil, and is now based in London, where she works on projects in acting, singing, and running performing arts workshops.

She taught herself ballet technique using a dance class VHS tape in rural Brazil (where no lessons were available) and, on moving to England in 2003, gained a place at a top London dance school, London Studio Centre, where she completed her professional training with a BA Hons Degree. After graduating, she worked in Musical Theatre in UK Tours and Cruise Lines, in addition to furthering her serious acting training with short courses, performances and workshops. She has performed at venues including the Wimbledon Theatre, Brighton Theatre Royal, Lowry Manchester, Bristol Hippodrome, and many others.

Now back in London after working away, she regularly performs as a jazz singer at weddings, parties and London bars, as well as developing her own children's workshops based on her experience of being home-educated in the mountains of New Hampshire as a child. She is currently producing and directing her own adaptation of The Tempest for young people, following the success of her production of Macbeth for children.
