Ella Havelka, First Indigenous Dancer with the Australian Ballet

Mid-air,

a grand jete,

a flying leap

from obscurity to spot lit,

 

Graceful straddling of cultures,

aplomb gained through rigour

Her determination swirls

with her movements,

holds her spine strong

and extends possibility

of who we can be
