Elena was born to a large family, fifth of six children and the only girl. She grew up in a small town Sillamae located on the Baltic Sea coast in Estonia.
In addition to attending a regular school, Elena and all of her siblings went to a music school, where they each studied for 7 years. Elena plays classical and jazz piano and basic guitar.
Elena has been dancing since the age of 7. Initially, for 6 years she was studying and performing with the dance ensemble at numerous concerts/festivals. She danced traditional folk and classic dances, eventually diversifying into other styles- contemporary, jazz, street, belly dance and tango. She was a regular performer in a range of dance events staged on a local level. Moreover, she performed internationally at dance festivals in Bulgaria and Russia. Elena is also experienced in staging choreography, be it private orders for marrying couples or a group dance for bridesmaids. In 2012 she also was teaching children, 5-10 years old, street and contemporary styles in Inspiration2dance.com, London.
Her love and passion for theatre started at the age of 15, when she joined a local theatre production for youngsters. During that time she took part in different theatre festivals in Estonia. In 2008-2010 she went on to study Teaching & Training at Tallinn University, Estonia. In 2010 Elena came to London and she continued her studies. She graduated with BSc in Economics & Business, first honours, from London Metropolitan University in July 2014. In 2012 Elena took a three-month intensive course Voice for Performance in Central School of Speech and Drama (CSSD). In 2014 she took English pronunciation course for international actors, level 3, at City Lit Academy.
Even though she studied business, her heart and soul were always calling to perform on stage, so she continued acting in films, modelling and dancing.
Some of the films she was involved in 2013-2014 are Want by Jeff Stewart (script and idea is Elena’s); Covers by Waiki Harnis; Blueprint by Ab Lin; Offers by Julian Butshell and many others.

Currently Elena is in the rehearsal process of a modern theatre play about choices and consequences, to be staged this year in London. Elena is also involved in development of few feature films. Once a week Elena presents on TRT MUSIC, National Turkish channel, in the programme London Eye. Elena is passionate about writing and she is working now on her own scripts for short films, that in future will be developed into feature films.
