I first started releasing these videos as a way to encourage myself and other dancers to overcome their fear of freestyle and most of all, as a reminder that dancing should be fun! With the phenomenon of youtube and televised dance competitions, more and more young people are able to learn choreographies from the comfort of their own home, or they can drop into the many studios now offering classes That it's not all about spending hours in the studio learning somebody else's choreography, somebody else's way of moving and interpretation of the song. Sweating over hitting every beat and kicking yourself when you don't get it perfect. I wanted to stress the importance of letting go, being free and dancing for the fun of it! Motivate people to let go ` It was incredible to see so many dancers all over the world joining in.
Tempted? Simple. Just Press play, record and DANCE! #MyStyleFreestyle 🎥🕺🏽
Having won The Royal Ballet School's "Choreographer Of The Year" award, aged 11, it was clear that Julia's inherent drive and passion for pushing the boundaries of movement would eventually lead her to become one of the U.K's most exciting, rising talents.
Raised in both France and England, Julia attended her first dance lesson in a suburb of Paris, aged 2. Acting swiftly followed, landing her first feature film aged 8 with a leading role in Jean-Pierre Mocky's "Robin Des Mers". She continued juggling both acting and dancing , appearing in numerous films and television dramas whilst also dancing on the Paris Opera House stage in Don Quixote and La Symphonie Fantastique. Julia left both Paris and acting behind after being accepted into The Royal Ballet School where she would also eventually get to dance on The Royal Opera House stage which included 2 seasons of the Nutcracker. Her love for theatre combined with a strong desire to explore movement on a broader scale, led her back to Paris to study Physical Theatre at The "Ecole de Théâtre Jacques Lecoq"
