Ella Greene-Hoke began dancing at three. After taking classes at a few local studios, she developed a love for ballet. Some highlights from her early years include learning from Pat Sorrell, Shomaree Potter ( @balletnoire), and Leslie Hench. These wonderful teachers inspired Ella to keep working and follow her dreams. It was at 11 that she moved to @vbbacademy where she began to study and still trains under the direction of the incomparable Ana Maria Martinez. Ella hopes to dance professionally with a ballet company and eventually open her own studio, where she can share her love of ballet with others. When Ella is not dancing, she can be found piecing together a jigsaw puzzle, curled up with a book, or working on her own young adult novel.
