In 2019 he was awarded the National Student Star Award in Dance Train Magazine and has received a multitude of scholarships and is currently starring in ‘Westside Story’ on the Sydney Harbour. In 2021 (at 15), Eli, alongside fellow dancer Leah Cato, choreographed, directed and starred in the Unbroken Land short film ‘Desert Rain’. ‘Desert Rain’ is a piece inspired by their memories and expresses the happiness and enjoyment they felt as children when, on rare occasions, the rain came to Central Australia.
