Ella Mesma’s company class have been the root of her HOME series workshops. They originally facilitated the telling of the performers stories in a way that was healing and affirming and have now evolved into a series of 7 movement meditations inspired by the chakra system.

Ella trained at Laban/LSCD (where she now has an MA), but began her dance career with Afro Latin styles and breakdance. She also studied yoga with Abby Hoffman (Embodied Dancer Teacher Training) in 2011 and at the Karam Kriya School in 2018 (Kundalini Yoga).Some highlights of her performance experience include touring internationally with the Russell Maliphant Company, performing for Lea Anderson and the Olympics Opening Ceremony.Under Ella Mesma Company, she has been commissioned by Sadler’s Wells, Dance City and the National Circus Centre as well as having her work performed internationally (US; ZA).
