More home-grown talent returning to the local stage
DRTCC manager Linda Christof commented a few weeks ago on just how proud she was to be hosting two former Dubbo people who were returning to perform on the DRTCC stage. Bethany is one; another is highly-acclaimed Dubbo dance prodigy, Ella Havelka, who has been cast to perform in “Giselle” by The Australian Ballet on Saturday, October 14.
Ella danced with the Bangarra Dance Theatre before joining The Australian Ballet Company. She featured in the cover story for our Dubbo Weekender in September 2014. In that interview she told Natalie Holmes about growing up in Dubbo before she and her mum packed up and moved to Melbourne so Ella could pursue her passion for dance professionally.
“I had been so sheltered growing up in Dubbo and had no idea what to expect. I am so grateful to Mum though. She did all the hard yards,” Ella told Weekender.
