In 2015, Elizabeth started the project-based dance company Onelight which seeks to serve local artists, professionals, and audience members with work that will have a positive and lasting effect. To date, Onelight has raised and helped raise over $8,000 for organizations that serve their local communities with vital, life-changing services. Elizabeth also served as co-founder of Pinellas Dance Collective and BRIDGEfest, an organization and annual production that worked to connect dancers and professionals in the greater Tampa Bay area through teaching, class and performance opportunities.

 

Elizabeth and her family moved to the Chattanooga area in the Spring of 2020 and began working with the fantastic Mountain Arts Community Center located on Signal Mountain.  She founded Onelight Studios in the Fall of 2022, seeking to serve the local community with training that inspired, educated and equipped dancers of all ages.

The adventure now continues in Franklin, TN where God has led her and her family to settle.  Elizabeth is excited to see what is in store in their new home.  Let's dance Franklin!
