Ms. Elias

Dance and Drama Specialist, Lower Campus

About me...

My name is Debra Elias (she/her) and I am so excited to teach your student this year! I have been the Dance and Drama Specialist at Global Arts Plus Lower Campus since 2017. However, I’ve been part of the Global Arts Plus community for more than 15 years – as a parent, an Artist-in-Residence, and a guest teacher. I love Global Arts Plus and I’m very excited to bring my passion for dance, theatre and arts education to this role! I have been a professional flamenco dancer for over 20 years, working across the Midwest as a performer, choreographer, and teaching artist. I’m currently completing a Master of Arts in Teaching.
