Ellie was fascinated by the glamour of Vegas showgirls from a young age and dreamed, for most of her childhood, of running away with the circus! She studied ballet, tap, and jazz to get her sequin fix, which transitioned naturally into ballroom and Latin dancing.
After moving out of her hometown and into "the big city," Ellie stumbled across aerial and burlesque classes at the Ann Arbor Aviary in Ann Arbor, Michigan. She decided to pursue her journey into glitter, rhinestones, feathers, and false eyelashes in 2013 and never looked back!
Her first burlesque show, produced by Luna Legare, was "Let's Rock," that very same year in Ypsilanti, Michigan!
Ellie has since relocated to Detroit and has continued her aerial training at PoleFIT Revolution in Madison Heights, Michigan. She became an instructor in 2016 and has been teaching students to incorporate both traditional and ballroom dance elements into pole and aerial choreography.
She performed at her first festival, the Michigan Burlesque Festival, in 2017, debuting her first aerial/burlesque fusion act to Prince's "Little Red Corvette!"
Ellie enjoys taking class at the Detroit School of Burlesque to keep her skills sharp. She continues to develop new acts and loves to take her show on the road!
