Ellenore Scott's stylized version of a layout requires counterbalance and core stability. Be careful not to sacrifice the neutrality of the pelvis for a higher extension.


Scott, with her trademark humor, encourages dancers to focus on reaching toward a goal in step two: "Like that dog you've always wanted. You're reaching for a wiener dog."


Ellenore Scott is a dancer, teacher and choreographer. She was a finalist on Season 6 of "So You Think You Can Dance." She has performed on the television shows "Glee," "Smash" and "The Ellen DeGeneres Show," and for the 82nd annual Academy Awards. She has served as the assistant choreographer for the Broadway musicals CATS and Falsettos. In 2012, she founded her own company, ELSCO Dance. She teaches at Broadway Dance Center and Peridance Capezio Center in NYC.

Jeffrey Gugliotti is a member of ELSCO Dance.
