Julia began dancing when she was three years old. Now in her tenth year of dancing this will be her fourth year at Extensions and her second on the Junior company. She’s also a seventh grader at Old St. Mary’s, and in the rare instance she’s not at the studio, Julia enjoys cooking, reading, and sleeping.
This summer Julia prepared for the upcoming year by attending the Extensions Intensive, Elements Ballet Advanced Intensive, and Visceral Teen Dance Intensive. In addition, she was grateful to participate in the Giordano Dance Teen Intensive where she received the Jr. Light Award, recently enjoying one of the many benefits of that award: two days of classes and rehearsal with the Giordano Dance Company. Thank you Nan Giordano, Cesar Salinas, and Joshua Blake Carter! Julia feels as if Extensions is her second home, and she is grateful to be an Extensionite and part of the family. She also appreciates the amazing dance (and life) training that Extensions offers with opportunities to learn from some of the best dancers, choreographers and humans like Hillary Aarons, Jared Baker, Miranda Borkan, Christian Denice, Krista Ellensohn, Mike Gosney, Katie McCann, Taylor Mitchell, and Brian Rabenda. She especially thanks Lizzie MacKenzie for believing in her, pushing her, and creating so many wonderful opportunities for her to work towards.
