Julie Kathleen Holcomb did not discover the wonders of dance until her second semester of college.
Once exposed to the art, she could not get enough. From then on she has worked hard to develop the craft and skills of a dancer. She was a company member of Collin Dance Ensemble, where she attributes her initial discovery and growth of dance.She delved into different forms by studying modern, jazz, ballet, contemporary, African, and ballroom. She studied under Enrique Juarez as she competed in the Dallas ballroom competition, winning first place in both her categories of salsa and the waltz. Julie graduated Suma Cum Laude with a BFA in Dance Performance from Sam Houston State University in 2008. She attended the American College Dance Festival in 2007 and 2009, and performed in the 2009 Gala Concert under the direction of Andy Noble. Julie has lived in Austin for over two years and has performed and instructed for Blue Lapis Light ever since. She feels very blessed to be able to use her dance degree and live her passion with Blue Lapis Light.
