    Bio



    Elodie Dufroux was born in Loudun, France. She first got introduced to dance at the age of 7 at a dance school back home as an extracurricular activity. While training as a dancer, Elodie also decided to pursue a Bachelor’s Degree in International Business at the Lycée Victor Hugo in France. Graduating at 20 years old, Elodie took the decision to expand her horizons and moved to the United Kingdom to pursue a Masters in International Business Management at Huddersfield University. Once in England, she rediscovered her love for dancing at the renowned Pineapple Dance Studios. After finishing her studies, she embarked on an intense training journey with several choreographers in London at Pineapple Dance Studios as well as Dance Works and Studio 68.

    Following her training in London and looking to further her career in dance Elodie moved to New York in 2015 where she trained technique as well as street styles at Broadway Dancer Center. She joined the international program for 12 months and added an extra 4 months by also completing this institution's Professional Semester. While in NY, and due to her hard work and dedication to others in dance, Miss Dufroux quickly became one of the most sought after assistants in the field. Her expertise led her to work directly with choreographers such as Hamilton’s Jon Rua, Stacie Webster, and Atlantic Records choreographer, Carlos Neto.

    In April 2016, and after an intense audition period, AATMA Performance Arts in NY booked Elodie as one of the dancers for their show Mystic India: The World Tour. Shortly after she landed a role in Repertorio Español’s brand new production “La Cancion” also in NY which won the ACE award for Best Musical, went on to get raving reviews and is still currently running. Elodie was one of the principal dancers in the Bleacher Report/ Quicken Loans/ NFL YouTube commercials starring Stefan Diggs and assisted the choreographer, Carlos Neto, on this project.

    Her most recent projects include “Old Flames”, a music video for the band Coheed and Cambria choreographed by Jon Rua. Elodie also had the opportunity to perform for the promotion of this same song during the NY Comic Con convention which gathers more than 150.000 people. Elodie is a member of “ShinSa The Collective”, created and directed by Bo Park, another NYC based choreographer. The company presented their own full-length show, “Bluming”, in December 2018 with 2 sold out shows at the Dixon Place. Elodie is currently dancing and working in New York City and hopes to continue to share her passion for dance with her students.
