Kathi E.B. Ellis
Kathi Ellis's love of ballet was instilled as a teen watching The Royal Ballet, The London Festival Ballet, The Ballet Rambert and London Contemporary Dance Theatre, as well as many companies touring to London. In addition, she became fascinated with Diaghilev's Ballet Russes, and became a major user of interlibrary loans exploring the biographies of these amazing early-twentieth century dance icons. As a theatre director, she is a member of the Lincoln Center and Chicago Directors' Labs, and an associate member of the Stage Directors & Choreographers Society. Her work has been recognized with nominations for the South Florida Theatre Carbonell Award. Ellis has written book reviews and articles for “Southern Theatre,” the quarterly publication of the Southeastern Theatre Conference, and was a contributing writer for the first edition of Jefferson County Public Schools' textbook for 11th grade Arts and Humanities survey course and for YouthArts Tapestry, a Kentucky Arts Council publication. Ellis also writes for Arts-Louisville.com. Most recently her article “My Journey with Gene” was published in the Eugene O'Neill Society Newsletter.
