Classical Ballet Workshops at Honolulu Dance Studio -
An Opportunity to take Master Classes from a
World Class Ballet Instructor
Julie Bickerton Bravata is from Honolulu, Hawaii where she received her early training from Barbara Theusen and Nell Fuson. She continued her studies on full scholarship at the National Academy of Arts in Champaign, IL and in New York City at the School of American Ballet, the American Ballet Theatre Scholarship Program, and with Madame Darvash. At the age of 15, Julie became a member of ABT's Ballet Repertory Company. At 18, she was invited to join American Ballet Theatre under the direction of Mikhail Baryshnikov. During her six years there she was privileged to work with some of the world's leading choreographers such as Kenneth MacMillan, Antony Tudor, Roland Petit, Jerome Robbins, and Twyla Tharp. While with American Ballet Theatre, Julie appeared in several "Dance in America" and "Live from Lincoln Center" television presentations. She then went on to dance as a soloist with Ballet du Nord in France and the Feld Ballet in New York City. Since retiring from her performing career in 1988, Julie has taught all levels of ballet from creative movement through professional classes in New York, Oregon and South Florida. In April 2002, Julie received a Certificate of Recognition from the National Foundation for Advancement in the Arts for inspiring young dancers and for her commitment to the arts. Julie is currently the Ballet Director for Southern Dance Theatre in Boynton Beach, Florida.
