Olga El is happy to combine her love of writing and dance for Broadway World. Taking a cue from her ballet-trained parents, she began studying dance at a young age but had to take hiatus from the dance world in her teens. At 17 she moved to NYC to study writing at Pratt Institute and began studying various forms of dance while earning her BFA.
Since that time she has worked directly under the leadership of several dance companies in the genres of Modern/Contemporary, Ballet and Hip Hop as well as folkloric forms from around the world. She directs The Kandake Dance Theatre for Social Change, an extremely diverse collective that combines social activism and community engagement with folkloric, modern, theatrical and experimental artistry.
