Julia became a member with us in August of 2021, and she quickly fell in love with what Pure Barre provided her. Pure Barre has movements that are influenced by dance, and. with a dance background, Julia assumed classes would be a breeze and something easy to add to her schedule. While her dance background made it easy to quickly pick up vocabulary and movements, she realized that she discovered something that would truly push her mentally and physically. She loved that it never got easier - she just got stronger.
Throughout high school, Julia taught dance classes at a studio in Maryville, and she enjoyed how much of an impact she had on the young dancers. She realized that she wanted to reach other groups of individuals and see if she could make the same impact. Many of the instructors were so helpful in aiding Julia to make the decision to go to training. And, if you ask her now, she will honestly say it is one of the best decisions she has ever made!
Following high school graduation in 2022, Julia started teaching for PB at then end of summer. She is currently a full-time student at the University of Tennessee studying Audiology and Speech Pathology, in hopes of having her own practice one day. While being in school for the next 4-6 years Julia will stay in Knoxville and continue her journey as a PB teacher!
