“Find your gift and give it away.”
Julia grew up in country Victoria and moved to Melbourne in her teen years to study classical ballet at the Australian Conservatoire of Ballet. Since then, she has gone on to pursue further study in visual arts and art history. She became an XTEND Barre instructor in 2015, loving the elements of dance and the vibrant atmosphere in the studio. She strives to make each class enjoyable and to give each participant the attention they deserve. Her favourite part of teaching is seeing confidence develop (followed very closely by getting a hard-won laugh at a cheesy joke.) She has quite an eclectic taste in music… anyone with a strong dislike of boy bands – beware!
Studio(s) I teach at
My signature move
Plank… right at the end of class as a last little surprise!
Members would describe me as
Their dog’s number one fan.
Song that makes me move
Does Your Mother Know - ABBA
Something on my bucket list
Hoping for a trip to Europe in the near future!
