Julie Finkelman has been dancing as long as she could walk. She started dancing competitively at age 6 and never looked back. She danced at Amanda’s Academy of Dance for 12 years while growing up (starting even before the studio had officially formed!). Julie has experience with all forms of dance, both through Amanda’s and schooling at Victoria School of the Arts, but her true passion is tap. She continues to dance competitively and believes nothing beats learning new steps, rhythms and choreography. Julie has been teaching and choreographing tap in Edmonton for nearly 10 years and is excited for the opportunity to return to where her dance career started.
