Ella is 14 years old and enrolled in the Morning Conservatory Program at the Inland Pacific Ballet Academy. She began her dance training at age three, studying tap, ballet, and jazz at local studios until she found a “home” at the IPB Academy in January 2016. Ella has performed in five seasons of Inland Pacific Ballet’s The Nutcracker, dancing as a Kissing Doll, Flower, Clara Friend, and Icicle. In addition, Ella has also participated in IPB Academy’s Jr. Broadway Program production of Aladdin, and annual ballet Spring Recitals: Swan Lake, The Sleeping Beauty, Coppelia, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, and The Little Mermaid. Ella has participated in the IPB Academy Summer Intensive Program for several years, and in 2019 attended the American Ballet Theatre Summer Intensive in Orange County, CA. In 2021, she attended Bolshoi Ballet Academy’s Summer Intensive in Connecticut, and trained at Kaatsbaan in New York with many world renowned dancers and teachers. Ella is very thankful to have been chosen as an IPB Academy Trainee and wants to thank all of the IPB Academy teachers for their mentorship and guidance. Ella is looking forward to another great season with Inland Pacific Ballet.
