Ella Orme Part Time & Junior Transition Student
My name is Ella and I live in Berry on the South Coast of NSW, it’s a small country town. I started ballet when I was 2 years old and I’m now 12 and I love it even more than ever. I also enjoy contemporary and lyrical and I have also tried Jazz but classical ballet is my favourite genre.
I have been at Tanya Pearson for 18 months now and I travel up every week, on Fridays to attend the Junior Transition Program, Intermediate Foundation, PBT and Open class. I travel back to Berry every Saturday; it’s a long trip but it’s definitely worth it! At the end of last year my local teacher suggested I come to the Tanya Pearson Summer School and I loved it! I made new friends, learnt lots and really liked the teaching so I decided I wanted to keep coming.
Throughout my dancing so far I have performed in many local South Coast eisteddfods with solos and in groups in contemporary classical and lyrical styles. This year I applied to be an ambassador for a dancewear store and now represent the store in their advertising. This year I achieved a scholarship at The Illawarra Grammar school in Performing Arts for dance. Last year I auditioned for The Australian Ballet School Interstate Training Program and was accepted as a level 2 student which made me very happy! Every now and then I travel down to participate in classes in Melbourne which I love.
Every year for the last 5 years I have completed my RAD exams, achieving distinctions at all levels. Hopefully I can achieve a distinction this year too, that’s my aim! I love Tanya Pearson because I have met lots of new friends and the teachers are nice. I also like watching the older girls and boys who are amazing and inspiring.
My goal is to one day join a company like The Australian Ballet Company. My biggest inspiration is Darcey Bussell.
