Elle Evangelista

Named after my grandfather, Elle is a female name, which is usually pronounced "Ell", but is sometimes pronounced "Ellie". It derives from the French pronoun "elle", meaning "she". 

Elle is an emerging dance artist at the beginning of what she hopes is a lifelong career in the arts. With a degree from UWA she then completed her formal dance training at WAAPA and attributes her learning prior and post this as equally valid and valuable. She has worked for and performed at large and small venues, festivals, organisations of all sizes, independent artists and visual artists locally, regionally, interstate and internationally. Away from the stage and studio Elle has experience as a dance writer, producer, promoter and really (really) enjoys knitting.
