Elise Marie Ringenberg graduated Summa Cum Laude from Texas Christian University where she received a BFA in Modern Dance as an Honors Scholar. She developed her passion for dance while participating in dance and choreographic opportunities at Singapore American School. Upon moving to St. Louis, she continued her technique training at Patzius Performing Arts and danced for Midwest Dance Theatre. While attending TCU, Elise performed in works by Nina Martin, Susan Douglas Roberts, Sarah Gamblin, KT Niehoff, Jane Weiner, and Leslie Scates. Currently, she is pursuing careers in performance, choreography, education, and photography. Elise teaches dance, Pilates, and group fitness classes at Patzius Performing Arts, the Pilates and Yoga Center of St. Louis, and the Jewish Community Center. Elise is very excited to join Karlovsky & Company Dance for the 2014-2015 dance season and is grateful to be given the opportunity to work with such a collaborative group of artists.
