Ellie’s love for movement was discovered and honed at the age of 9 in 4 years of semi-intensive classical ballet training. Ellie began prop manipulation with a hoop in 2006. In the fall of 2007 she met Sensei Kyle Ford at a music festival in Minnesota where he taught her the 3-beat weave with a pair of practice poi and unknowingly unleashed a fire monster of gargantuan proportions. Her prop arsenal now includes hoop, isolation hoops, poi, staff, double staff, fans, meteor hammer, club swiniging, club swinging, (oh, and did i mention club swinging?) and DANCE. Her love of new and old styles of dance continues to evolve in every direction and her ultimate mission in movement is to seamlessly combine unique and expressive hybrid-dance technique with the clean and technical flow of any prop. CLUB LOVE!!
