Julianne has been involved in Egyptian style belly dance since 1998- first taking classes at Kismet with Yasmina. After a few years off she began taking classes again with Stephanie Buranek, Rebecca Clayton, and Amy Wilkinson at Hathor School of Dance. Several years later she was invited to join the troupe Hathor Dance Collective with Rebecca Clayton, Amanda Major Fox, and Rosalind Yoakum. She is currently performing solo, and with workshop groups.
With a career in fly fishing, Julianne travels world-wide allowing for a variety of performance and show production opportunities- with locations including Caribbean St. Lucia, Odell Lake OR, Pyramid Lake NV, Patagonia Chile, Baja Mexico, and Park City UT. She has been recruited by America’s Got Talent and recently performed at a private party with Katherine Heigl in attendance.
Julianne is continually seeking inspiration and technique from local teachers Stephanie Buranek, Meg Hinds, Rebecca Clayton, and Tinuviel- and sends her gratitude to each of them for sharing their talents with the Utah belly dance community. She’s a regular at Cedars of Lebanon, and loves the social aspect of dance- she is always looking foward to meeting new friends and fans!
Book Julianne for your party, festival, or dinner event- she is willing to travel as a solo performer or in a troupe/duet with collaborative dancers.
