Elias Kababa

Eli Kababa is a gifted artist, dancer, choreographer and instructor. His dance career was forged as a student of Tae Kwon Do simultaneously discovering his love of hip-hop street-dance and the fine arts. These forms combined with passion, devotion and experimentation led Eli to co-found Garden State Dance Project. A company that exists to bring communities together through various educational, instructional, and performance projects. He has also shared his talents with organizations like New York City Ballet, Center for Arts Education, Arts Horizons, Brant Lake Dance Camp and Harkness Dance Center where he is a graduate of the Dance Education Laboratory (DEL). He is co-author of a hip-hop dance curriculum which debuted this year through the 92nd Street Y’s Educational Outreach Center's School Partnership Program. Eli truly loves sharing the art and gift of dance with students of all ages and abilities.
