Ella Isabelle Titus was born in Clearwater, Fla. She started ballet training at the age of three with Maureen Gibson. As a young girl she began performing with Florida West Youth Ballet under the direction of Pavel Fomin and began intensive ballet training with Haydee Gutierrez. Titus received scholarships to attend summer programs with American Ballet Theatre, the School of American Ballet, San Francisco Ballet School and Miami City Ballet School. At age 14, she moved to Miami to attend MCB School full-time as a scholarship student, and was offered an apprenticeship at age 16. Two years later, in 2015, Titus graduated from Miami Beach High School and joined Miami City Ballet’s corps de ballet.
In 2015, Titus was featured in season two of Teen Vogue’s documentary series “Strictly Ballet,” which followed six MCB School students in their final year of training. She was proud to represent Miami City Ballet School, the company and her home state of Florida.
