Julie trained in the Cecchetti method of Classical Ballet. At a studio in Melbourne, where the première dancers of the day were always available to teach guest classes. Consequently her training was truly inspirational. Julie completed her Associate, Associate Diploma and Licentiate teaching certificates with Cecchetti Ballet Australia and is now Affiliated with the ATOD.
Julie has previous professional dance experience in Cabaret and Television dancing in Australia, Asia and Japan, but has always believed teaching and passing on the love of dance is so much more rewarding.
Avalon has studied ballet, jazz and tap at Dancehouse for many years. She began teaching a few classes in 2015 and is a favourite with our current students.
