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, and later, 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, 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 Shelby Township, 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 continues to develop new acts and has been a very busy showgirl, investing time into learning costuming, continuing movement training, and running her business...
OH YEAH! HER BUSINESS!

In 2020 things got realllly boring. (Naturally, the perfect time to start an entertainment business!) With no hope of returning to the stage any time soon, Ellie needed a project. By this point, she had performed at a couple of weddings, and knew it was time to take things to the next level- to offer that something extra that would create an unparalleled experience for her clients.
And so she enlisted the help of her husband, and they set out to build the strolling table. It has been a staple of her business since its maiden voyage. It all became official in 2021 when Ellie Camino Entertainment LLC was signed into existence!
Since then, Ellie has been dreaming up new luxury services to offer to clients. Champagne, anyone?
