"Elle came on board to Movement Direct my solo fringe show, Recovery Town. Not only did she masterfully manage my fears around movement, she has a miraculous ability to draw out structure with those she works with. Elle asks questions. I found that through talking through the movement, and through Elle's examination of my motives and performance aims, my entire show grew in clarity. So much of her subtle direction is pushing you to make creative, daring and often beautiful choices. I have no hesitation in recommending her most highly."

"I can’t express how grateful I am to have Elle as a role model, director and all round inspiration, honestly. Her willingness to learn even in the position of a teacher, brings me so much hope. Her care towards us as a class has been phenomenal; we would not have got to where we needed to be without her being there and guiding us. Elle's courage and boldness is remarkable. Thank you! Also thanks to her for bringing yoga into my life! "
