Julia is a sixteen year old junior at Walter Payton College Prep. She began dancing when she was 2 years old and has been dancing with Extensions Dance Company for the last 8 years. Julia is passionate about dance because she enjoys expressing herself, working creatively, and using her artistic voice to grow and learn. Her favorite dance styles are ballet and contemporary. When Julia is not dancing, she enjoys baking and spending time with friends and family. Julia is extremely grateful for Lizzie MacKenzie and all the faculty at Extensions for inspiring her and providing her with many opportunities, and is very thankful for the way they push her to grow and reach her full potential!
