Julie lives in Norway’s capital city Oslo with her family and her cat. She has always had a passion for dancing; starting at the age of 4 in her local ballet school and advancing at the age of 12 to join the National Opera & Ballet School. In 2010 she furthered her dancing education by being accepted into the Oslo National Academy of Arts to study classical ballet. Julie is now in her third year at the Academy. Julie is not new to competition after competing in a ballet competition in Falun, Sweden last year. She is also no stranger to the stage having performed in productions at the national theatre and national opera and battle in Oslo. Julie has been part of several international dance programmes including the Boston Ballet Sumer Dance Program in 2011 to 2012.
