Dance and theatre first came into his life through High School band and musical theatre productions. He studied briefly at Middle Tennessee State University before diving head first into the ballet world at Nashville Ballet. Elijah later graduated summa cum laude from The Boston Conservatory with a BFA in Contemporary Dance Performance. While at the Boston Conservatory, Elijah performed work by Mark Morris, Danny Pelzig, Danny Buraczeski, Cathy Young, and Andrea Miller.

Look MOM, I did it! I am ecstatic to be a part of the first national tour of the Broadway show: Roald Dahl's Charlie and the Chocolate Factory; cast as swing, understudy Mike Teavee and Augustus Gloop. This is a 'first' for me in a lot of aspects: first national tour, first equity contract, first time being a swing, and first time understudying two principal roles. I am so grateful for this opportunity and cannot wait to share this incredible show!
