Ellie Cole was caught off-guard when a video of her busting a move to ABBA's "Dancing Queen" started gaining attention around the world. That's because Cole had no idea she was being filmed.
Jane Rowland, the owner of a cafe across the street from the bus stop when Cole was spotted privately dancing, recorded the impromptu routine and uploaded the results to the web, where it immediately took off.
Whatever concerns Cole may have had about the vis-à-vis privacy and personal space invasion quickly subsided when the video helped her land a part in a play at the prestigious Point Theatre in her hometown of Eastleigh.
Cole, a former performing arts major who was forced to drop out due to financial constraints, said the unexpected offer fulfills a long-held dream of appearing on stage.
She will, of course, be dancing.
