Julie is, by far, our favorite Italian. Born and raised in Chicago’s Little Italy neighborhood, she truly brings a Sebastian Maniscalco sense of humor to the company. Julie started her dance career as a tiny ballerina at the age of3. She has studied several styles of dance including Latin dance and has both taught and performed nationally and internationally with Latin Rhythms. Julie has a classic dance style and is a stickler for technique. Her favorite aspect of dance and music is their intrinsic value. She believes they are two of the most inclusive art forms on the planet; allowing every student a lifetime of continuous growth in an environment with no limits. Julie joined Latin Rhythms Dance Company in2004 and is now serving the company as its Chief Marketing Officer (CMO).
