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.
