Former ABT Soloist; UNC School of the Arts Instructor
I have been a dancer all my life, from early training at the San Francisco Ballet, School of American Ballet, and UNC School of the Arts (UNCSA), to professional dancing with the National Ballet of Washington, Ballet Arizona, and American Ballet Theatre (soloist). I have been on faculty, full and part-time, at UNCSA since 2000 and also teaching at the “Dancer’s Edge” studio in Kernersville, NC. I am an ABT-certified instructor, and have taught in every “ABT Summer Intensive” since they began in 1996. I currently own a Yoga/Pilates/Tai Chi/Dance studio for adults, “Studio Elevé,” in Kernersville, NC.
As a proud teacher of adult ballet classes, I have long “dreamed” of such a comprehensive kind of dance class as The Dancer’s Workout® as a means of engaging adults physically, mentally, and recreationally. My own mission at Studio Elevé is “helping to keep older people younger longer!” I love how Jules has so thoroughly prepared these choreographed classes and shared her enthusiasm with us!
