She competed in world wide Ballet competitions, such as YAGP (Youth American Grand Prix). Julia received a scholarship to Point Park University, a nationally recognized dance conservatory, to complete her Bachelors’ in dance.

Before the pandemic hit, Julia accepted a contract to dance globally with Norwegian Cruise Line, but life had other plans. Her fiancé, her bunny, and Julia made the decision to move to Seattle. Julia had the opportunity to dance for the Seattle Seahawks for a year before deciding to hang up the poms and focus on teaching!
