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.
Dancehouse is one of over 130 Affiliate dance studios in Australia taking part in the DanceStep - Dance Student Teacher Education Program
DanceStep encourages and empowers our next generation of young leaders by providing opportunities for students to assistant teach within certain classes. Working alongside our dance teachers, assistants also study theory from the DanceStep program, providing valuable knowledge in areas such as Anatomy, Safe Dance, Learning Styles and Musicality. The inclusion of leadership studies and self awareness activities seeks to encourage students to take responsibility for themselves and others in a supported environment which often results in increased levels of self esteem and confidence.
Our DanceStep Student Teacher team is: Miss Caitlin, Miss Edie, Miss Georgia, Miss Hannah, Miss Haily, Miss Lili & Miss Macey.
