Faculty:
We are thrilled to welcome Britt Juleen as our newest faculty member at The Academy. With Miss Juleen’s extensive experience as a professional dancer and teacher, students at The Academy have an invaluable opportunity to hone their dance technique and grow as artists.

About Miss Juleen

As a professional dancer for 18 years, Britt Juleen has spent most of her career as a first soloist ballerina in Europe at the Dutch National Ballet in Amsterdam, and in Germany’s Dresden SemperOper Ballet’s exquisite Opera House. She also performed with Ballet Arizona, Ballet Gamonet in Miami, Florida, and with the contemporary dance companies iMEE and Jacoby&Pronk.

Britt studied at the School of American Ballet, New World School of the Arts, Pacific Northwest Ballet School, Houston Ballet Academy, as well as teacher training at American Ballet Theater. Ms. Juleen received her M.F.A. in Dance from Hollins University and served as a full-time Professor at San Jose State University. She also served as the Artistic Director of Berkeley Ballet Theater.
 
Her approach to teaching is influenced by many facets of movement exploration, and her true love for the art form as a pure language of the soul and body. Alternate studies of somatic movement education such as The Feldenkrais Method, Body-Mind Centering, meditation, and embodied forms of psychology are of great importance to her, allowing her to enrich traditional ballet technique with an individual sense of authentic expression and kinesthetic development.
