Eleni Papaioannou

Eleni Papaioannou is a freelance dance teacher, performer and choreographer specialising in physical theatre and improvisation.

Eleni was born in Athens in 1993 where she began her dance training. In 2014 she completed her undergraduate studies at London Contemporary Dance School and she has since worked professionally with various choreographers and artists in Europe. She has an ongoing interest in alternative embodied teaching practices and attempts to link dance with other art forms. 

In 2014 Eleni found A(r)CT with the idea that dance and every art form should serve as a medium for sociopolitical change. She has since created and presented work in Greece, UK and Mexico.
