After graduating Summa Cum Laude from Arizona State University on a Presidential Academic Scholarship, Ellie Soto moved to North Hollywood to begin her Professional Dance Career. She is represented by one of the most prestigious dance agencies in the country, Go 2 Talent Agency and has found much success since moving. Ellie just finished filming the dance film “Heartbeats” in Mumbai, India-which is currently being released worldwide. She has danced in music videos and on The Ellen Show for Ariana Grande, and on TV shows such as “Mobbed” and “Americas Greatest Hits.” In addition to commercial work, she has had extensive classical ballet and modern training that she furthered in Alvin Ailey’s Professional Division Summer Program. She has assisted Tyce Diorio for the hit TV show “So You Think You Can Dance” and was also a Top 22 Female “green mile” finalist for the show in seasons 4&6. Ellie performs as a member of Emmy Award Winning Tessandra Chavez’s Contemporary/Hip Hop Company “Unity LA.” She also just began her third tour as a Faculty Member for Velocity Dance Convention, where she travels around the country assisting Professional Choreographers, judging competitions, and mentors young dancers in a different city every weekend.
