Ellie Roach was with Madison Contemporary Vision Dance Company for five years. A native of Madison, she began studying ballet at an early age under the instruction of Meredith Mast, Susan Marsden, and W. Earle Smith. When her dedication to dance became more serious, she began studying at Madison Ballet and participating in the many performance opportunities she was fortunate enough to receive.
Upon her high school graduation, Ellie moved to Los Angeles where she expanded her love of dance beyond ballet. During her time in Los Angeles, she was able to study various forms of dance from Matthew Tseng, Mandy Moore, Terri Best, Doug Caldwell, Tokyo, Denise Leitner, Tessandra Chavez, Erica Sobol, Sony Tayeh, and Stacey Tookey.
Currently, Ellie teaches at A Leap Above Dance in Oregon, Wisconsin.
