She returned to Las Vegas, going to school and performing in benefit productions alongside the Las Vegas casts of "Phantom," "Mamma Mia" and "Spamalot." She was homeschooled her senior year, commuting to Los Angeles, and guest starring in Disney's "The Suite Life on Deck" and ABC's "The Middle."
A week after graduation, Elle moved to LA and starred in her first feature film "At the Top of the Pyramid," a cheerleading based independent film co-starring Dean Cain and Steve Guttenberg.
Elle returned to her "stage roots" to star as the pint-sized "All About Eve" inspired villain, Eva, in the National Tour of Universal Pictures Stage Productions/Beacon Entertainment's "Bring It On: The Musical." The show was composed of the Tony Award winning creative team of "In the Heights", "Avenue Q" and "Next to Normal." The national tour premiered at the prestigious Center Theater Group's "Ahmanson" theatre in Los Angeles. It then continued on to 12 more cities, including San Francisco, Chicago, St. Louis, and Toronto.
"Bring it On" then went on to New York City, where Elle made her Broadway debut at the St. James Theatre.
