Begin your journey with ballet

Ballet is a powerful way for teens to push their minds and bodies, develop self confidence, and learn to express themselves. It has a transformative effect on lives and communities, whether this is the first dance class ever, the first in a long time, or cross-training for other forms of dance.

Broche Ballet provides a place for dancers of all ages and skill levels to love ballet.

Julie Gill is a fantastic professional private coach. Our daughter, Jordyn, has experienced quality ballet education from an incredibly talented teacher. In a very short while Jordyn has excelled tremendously in proper ballet technique and confidence. Julie is very motivating, caring, gentle, and always professional. We highly recommend Miss Julie Gill.

Meet your coach and founder of Broche Ballet

Julie Gill began dancing as an adult and is proof that it is never too late to live your dreams. She excelled quickly under the careful and exacting eye of Beth Kurtz in New York City, achieving pointe work within a short 2 years, and attending youth summer intensives where she danced alongside pre-professional ballet students.

She has always loved to teach and has taught many different subjects to many different audiences throughout her career. When Ms. Kurtz fell ill and was unable to continue teaching, Julie learned from her how to teach and pass along her methods.

As an adult dancer herself, she understands the differences in training adults and children, how to take adult dancers seriously, and she has the unique advantage of remembering how she figured things out which she passes on to her students.

Julie loves to break things down, solve problems, and help people understand the technique of ballet. She founded Broche Ballet so she could share the joy of ballet with all who wish to learn.

Dear Julie,

Thank you for always pushing me to be better and grow as a dancer. You have inspired me so much in many different ways and forms. I remember when we started our first session all the way to our most recent session and I loved every minute of it! I remember all the tips and clues you gave me to help me improve. I just want to say thank you for helping me as a dancer and also as a person.

Love, Jordyn
