Ella has always been the “Bibo kid” in her family, and it became a reason for her to explore and enjoy dancing. Aside from the physical benefits that dance has brought her, it became a way of improving her overall well-being.

Ella Rabang always thinks of someone or something as an inspiration when dancing. She tries her best to explore different genres of music before getting into the process of creating choreography, and when she gets to pick one, she would vibe to it and the choreography follows. She considers being part of the UP Streetdance Club and becoming a trainee of The Crew are the biggest achievements in her dancing career.
