Dancing Through Transitions

Over the last few years I lost many significant people in my life including both my parents (who gave me my love for partner dance). Waves of grief would overwhelm me. Many times their special songs would come to mind and I’d want to dance to it. As I did, I was able to feel connected to them, grieve the loss, and delight in the joy of remembering.

Our world is going through a big transition, and transitions can be challenging. Practice releasing stuck emotions as you restore your natural rhythms. Join our group workshop – Dancing Through Transitions.

Private lessons 

Schedule a private lesson for any transition in life, or just simply for fun! I have lots of dance music to share. 

Or if you want to bring your special song, we can choreograph your connected movements. Transitions include weddings, celebrations of life, empty nesting, career changes, and navigating any of life’s ups and downs. Whatever the transition, there’s a song for it.  Let the music in me, light the music in you.” Julie

As a professional ballroom dance instructor and competitor, my experience includes foxtrot, waltz, viennese waltz, tango, rhumba, chacha, mambo, samba, swing and two-step. 

In 2004, I opened Slippers, a creative arts center in WI, which was nominated main street business of the year in its first year. After moving back to the Twin Cities, I continued to teach partner dance through Retro Ballroom in St. Louis Park where I received significant training, and I am now located up north teaching in Zimmerman, Elk River, and Anoka.


I have experienced the many jewels of partner dance. As you practice moving as one, you relax, and feel beautifully integrated, purposely flowing, and alive with energy and vitality.

Explore how partner dance will:

  • Wake up your natural joy
  • Shake off the old and welcome in the new
  • Attune your body and heart to open and flourish 
  • Nourish the “art of connection”  

 Let’s move forward on the right foot, together. 

Plus, Stanford’s 20-year research shows partner dance improves brain function by 76%, by far the highest results.
