Julia is Choreographer and Movement Director based in London.
After training for three years at Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts she worked as a performer in both musicals and plays. After a few years Julia started to also work in immersive and experimental theatre, puppetry and with companies such as Punchdrunk and training with companies such as Frantic Assembly. It was during this time that the urge to create and collaborate grew and therefore decided to devote all her time to choreographing, and more recently directing.
Julia works with a diverse mix of styles having trained in Ballet through to Street, Jazz to Ballroom, Lindy Hop and most in between. She is currently training in Stage Combat and weaponry.
Julia works tirelessly to support performers, and to help them push their boundaries in areas where they may have never felt comfortable before. She prides herself in being able to unleash everybody’s inner dancer, even those who don’t believe it’s there and also pushing those more experienced to work beyond their limits and find new dimensions in their work.
Having also worked as a Resident and Assistant Director, she has a keen eye for detail, and has built strong relationships within her creative teams as well as bringing an open collaborative approach to new ones.
As a creator Julia is passionate about engaging with a wider audience though physical and imaginative storytelling. Recently, Julia has been working with the charity The Flying Seagull Project. They work in areas of crisis around the world, primarily in refugee camps, bringing joy through dance, music and play to those most in need.
Julia also teaches and choreographs at a number of top drama schools.
