Julie was a ballet and tap teacher for 20 years, and as of November 2017, she sold her dance school to concentrate solely on Dance for PD®.

In 2015 Julie traveled to New York, USA to attend the first course in Dance for PD® with the Founding Director, David Leventhal. Julie began teaching classes almost immediately.

In  January 2017, fellow ballet teacher, Carmen Davidson joined Julie and together they have pioneered the program’s reach throughout South Africa.

Julie returned to New York in October 2017 to complete further training. Julie is now one of only 6 certified trainers world wide. Dance for Parkinson’s SA® has trained teachers in Gauteng, Eastern Cape, KZN and Western Cape, as well as training a teacher from Harare, Zimbabwe.

Julie says:

My passion is Dance for PD® and to see how people with PD respond, is nothing but incredible and soulfully rewarding!

Parkinson’s has many motor and non motor symptoms and in these classes we address these symptoms in fun, challenging, creative ways with the aid of music as our greatest tool!

We would love to have you join a class, come and experience why WE CHOOSE TO MOVE…

We run training courses for dance teachers, as well as Educational and Enrichment Workshops. We offer workshops for Occupational therapists and Physiotherapists who are interested in our methods, cueing strategies and  the creative tools which we use in our classes.
