Elya is from Belgium is studying for four months in our Semi-Intensive Plus Course at ELC Los Angeles, and will study for a total of 24 weeks! She has been working hard to perfect her English and taking advantage of her free time to explore the city and soak up that LA sun! Her passion is hip hop dance and she has great opportunities here to pursue it. Check out some more information about Elya below!
I was born and raised in Brussels, Belgium.
I like to go shopping, enjoy with my friends and to dance.
I’m a dancer since I was 5 and I think this is my special talent!
I’m a student but a semi-professional dancer at the same time. I like how fun it is!
I’m an only child but have a big family full of aunts, cousins and uncles.
Because LA has nice weather and I prefer the American accent to the British one.
LA is so big compared to my city. Sometimes it doesn’t even look like a city because everything is so far apart!
I miss the food so much!
I haven’t found any place yet where I can grab some Belgian food.
I appreciate every moment I get to live at ELC even when I’m tired or feel bad, I still like it because everyone is so nice!
If you want to learn it, you can do it! Even though it’s a very hard language, it’s always possible. The only thing is not to give up!
I’ll dance a lot for two more months in LA then go back to Belgium to go to university.
