Elie Rosales

Elie began his dance journey in 2000 where he received his initial training right here at Peak Performing Arts Center. By introducing dance into his life, Peak PAC played a pivotal role in forming who Elie is as an adult today. As dance had been both a source of happiness and joy, as well as support during more difficult times, Elie’s main goal is to not only share knowledge and technique, but to share the same joy and passion into today’s youth. This is truly a full circle moment for him.


Elie has travelled throughout the country during his dance career which spanned multiple disciplines including salsa/mambo, ballet, jazz, tap, among other styles. Currently, Elie is an instructor at Peak Latin Dance and is a part of Eleanee Jimenez’s semi-pro Dancing Lashes salsa team.
