Born and raised in Miami, Ellyott began his dance training at Dancing in XS where he studied tap, jazz, ballet, and hip hop. He joined both Live in Color and the Miami Heat’s Junior Jam at the age of 12 where he was given the opportunities to perform with artists such as Lil’ John, Trina, Lil’ Wayne and Trick Daddy. In high school he co-captained the nationally-ranked Coral Reef Varsity Cudettes and was a member of Florida State University’s Golden Girls and Company. Two days after graduating from FSU, Ellyott made the move across the country to Los Angeles to further his dance career. Over the years he’s worked with choreographers such as Matt Steffanina, Tracy Halas, and Jillina Carlano on shows like Mickey and the Magical Map and Bellydance Evolution’s – Alice in Wonderland. He recently finished an east coast tour with MAC Cosmetics for their new holiday line “Nutcracker Sweet.” Ellyott looks forward to growing as an entertainer and being able to share his passion for dance with audiences around the world.
