Brazil—focuses on the cultural origins of contemporary concert dance styles in her native city. 

Santos' artistic and scholarly works have been presented widely in Brazil, the United States, South Africa, Portugal, Canada and Finland.

She directed the premiere of the Latina Dance Project at UNC-Greensboro in 2002 and has maintained professional activities with the group, even after relocating to Brazil.

In addition, Santos has founded a new company in her home state, Companhia de Artes Eluza Santos. For her, it is invigorating to work with two companies, each in a different country, and she often draws from her Brazilian cultural roots in her teaching, choreography, and scholarly work.
