Originally from Chicago, Illinois, Julianne Bromstead, began her dance training at the age of four, and by seven years old, she was already competing nationally. This training provided a strong foundation for her competitions, where she auditioned and was awarded many scholarships, and was fortunate to learn and dance with former “So You Think You Can Dance” choreographers Brian Friedman and Tyce Diorio. Following her competition days, she continued her training at the Lou Conte Dance Studio in Chicago, part of Hubbard Street Dance. During this time she also lead her high school dance team to a first place state championship as a captain and choreographer. Since Julianne knew from an early age that she wanted to make dance a career, after high school she continued her education at Columbia College Chicago where she studied many different dance forms, including ballet, tap, jazz, modern, hip-hop and African dance, and also performed in faculty and student showcases. It was at Columbia that she earned her BA in dance, concentrating on teaching and choreography. Julianne moved to the Bay Area in 2015 and is excited to share her devotion and passion for dance. She is committed to making dance a positive and fun experience for all her students, and to provide an environment in which dancers can learn and grow.
