Ellie Nelson, an 8th grade student at Aragon Middle School, was recently promoted from Senior Company to Soloist in Artisan Ballet Company. Ellie has been a member of Artisan School of Dance since 2010 and has become a well-rounded dancer taking classes in classical ballet, contemporary, modern, flamenco, tap and hip hop over the years.
Ellie is not only an accomplished dancer but also an accomplished student. Congratulations to Ellie for being selected to attend Trinity University’s summer Creative Writing Program as a Duke TIP Scholar. Ellie will be working with other scholars this summer to discover her artistic voice through an in-depth look at examples of great literature and the elements that form the foundation of such writing.
