Julia began dancing with Susan Robinson before going on to train professionally at Central School of Ballet in London. Whilst there, she won a Bronze medal at the Genee International Ballet Competition and toured the UK with Ballet Central. Upon graduation, she joined Northern Ballet Theatre, performing in their productions of The Three Musketeers, A Christmas Carol and Romeo and Juliet.
Julia has performed with Les Ballet Persans (Stockholm), Ballet de Camara de Morelos (Mexico) and Lalaget Danza (Mexico) touring internationally to USA and Canada and dancing roles in neo-classical and contemporary creations, including the lead in Diego Vazquez' Nutcracker and the title role in Nima Kiann's Femme.
After returning to the UK in 2010 she joined Ballet Theatre UK, where her favourite roles included Gerda in The Snow Queen, Alice from Alice in Wonderland and Odette in Swan Lake.
Julia is also a freelance journalist for Dance For You magazine, and blogs under the name balletgirlblogging. In 2011 she organised and ran a charity event called Dance For Japan, which raised £6000 for the Red Cross in the wake of the earthquake and subsequent tsunami.
