Julie has lived, taught and danced throughout the USA and internationally. Between 1993 and 1997, she worked with the Prairie Wind Dancers and the Lawrence Arts Center in Lawrence, KS. Then in 1998, began to work with zen monkey project and Live Arts Theater in Charlottesville, VA. She and her family lived in Athens, GA from 2000 – 2009, with a year in Silver Spring, MD. Her year in Silver Spring gave her the opportunity to be an apprentice at the Liz Lerman Dance Exchange. While in Georgia, she was an adjunct and guest instructor at University of Georgia and Emory University. She also helped found Warehouse Collective, FloorSpace Studio, and the Handful Series. Performática (Puebla, México), an international dance festival founded in 2008 by Mayra Morales and Ray Eliot Schwartz, became one of Julie’s most beloved dance homes/communities. Once in Boulder, CO, she was an occasional guest instructor in the University of Colorado School of Music, Colorado College and Colorado State University. She also opened FloorSpace Studio, created MAPS (making and performing solos) – an online dance exchange project, co-founded the CLOSE LOOK series and became a Nordic Ski Instructor (PSIA). From her upbringing on a farm in Ohio, to every town she’s visited and lived in – the interconnectedness between these landscapes and communities has been the catalyst for all of her work. Julie now includes Durham, NC as one of her hometowns.
