Artistic Director

Julie has been dancing since the age of 3 at Belinda’s Dance Studio. She has been trained in tap, jazz, ballet, hip-hop, lyrical and acrobatics. In 1992 at the age of 6, she competed on Star Search with 4 other dancers in a dance group called “Too Cute For You”, going on to win the title of Junior Dance Champions. The group went on to performing at NBA basketball game halftime shows and made special guest appearances. Julie has continued to dance and compete in numerous competitions through the years and owes all of her knowledge of dance to the talented teachers she learned from, including Miss B! She is currently hired at the Disneyland Resort where she has performed in numerous parades and shows including Parade of the Stars, Disney’s Electrical Parade, Block Party Bash, A Christmas Fantasy Parade, Parade of Dreams and Fantasmic. For the past 11 years, Julie has choreographed for Flashback, a charity show at the Disneyland Resort, raising thousands of dollars for local charities in the Orange County area. She also had the opportunity to teach underprivileged kids in Orange County through an organization called “The Wooden Floor”. Julie was honored to travel the US as a judge for Kids Artistic Review dance competitions, this being her 3rd year in a row! Julie was promoted as Artistic Director of B’s Dance Place this past year and will continue her role at Downey Dance Center. Her passion in life is not only dance, but also bringing the joy and excitement of performing to her students in hopes of inspiring them to follow their dreams. It’s been a wild and crazy year and she can’t believe how much her students have improved! She is beyond proud of everyone! Break a leg tonight everybody!
