Julie Hricko, being from a small town in Ohio, moved to New York City eight years ago to begin graduate school at Long Island University. It was at LIU where she found a passion for dance when she took her first ever dance class in 2010 with Pavan Thimmaiah. Since then she has not stopped training in multiple genres such as hip hop, jazz, locking, dancehall, and breaking. She has performed in many showcases at PMT Dance Studio and The Ailey Citigroup Theater. She has been involved in two flash mobs, choreographed by Pavan Thimmaiah, for Gendex at The Javits Center and for Trans America at the Pilipino Day Parade in NYC.

She is currently a volunteer at Groove With Me in Harlem teaching young girls the fundamentals of dance and has teaching experience at PMT Dance Studio and LIU.
