Ella is a dance artist & yoga teacher from Yorkshire, based in London. In 2015 Ella gained a First Class BA (Hons) Degree in Dance Making & Performance.
A contemporary dancer, Ella’s practice is informed by improvisation, yoga, somatic based practices and an expanded idea of what dance and choreography could be.
An important part of Ella’s practice is the practice itself and the commitment to a continuous dance practice. Interests within this include perception, attention, seeing/not seeing, vision, darkness, philosophy, deconstruction of a yoga movement vocabulary, the emergence of form in improvisation and many more curiosities. Ella has started to input this ongoing process into a making/research practice entitled @etdd__ . Her work has been supported by Kala Sangam Bradford, Ponderosa Berlin, Clarence Mews London and Creation Box London.
As a yoga teacher, Ella teaches across various different London based Yoga Studios and is trained in Ashtanga, Dynamic Vinyasa, Rocket and Mandala Vinyasa.
Ella regularly facilitates dance and movement within a variety of different contexts and is a lead facilitator for Flux Dance.
Ella has performed and worked with a variety of different independent dance artists including Flux Dance, Joon Dance, Lizzy LeQuesne, Florence Peake, Gaby Agis etc.
