Originally from Ohio, Julie moved to New York City in 2009 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 jazz, hip-hop, contemporary, breaking, locking, ballet, and dancehall. She has performed in many showcases at PMT Dance Studio and The Ailey Citigroup Theater. She has also been involved in two major marketing campaigns, all choreographed my Pavan Thimmaiah, for fortune 500 company Gendex, filmed at The Javits Center, and for Transfast America, filmed at various locations in New York City and New Jersey. She was also a dancer in Elizabeth Chan’s music video “Fa La La”, choreographed by Sarah Burke. As a principal dancer for PMT Dance Company, she has performed all over NYC, as well as upstate New York and Baltimore. She has also danced as part of the half-time show for the NY Liberty at Madison Square Garden (2014-2016), as well as the Brooklyn Nets at Barclays’ Center (January and April 2017), and NBC’s “Today Show” (February and September 2015).
Julie’s teaching experience includes teaching young girls hip hop at Groove With Me in Harlem (2012-2017), as well as teaching many jazz and hip hop classes at PMT Dance Studio and Long Island University.
