Julie was a promising young ballerina who distinguished herself as a student at the School of American Ballet at Lincoln Center and as a performer in the children's repertoire of many New York City Ballet productions. JulieDance is dedicated to fostering participation in and appreciation for dance and music, and to supporting the research and treatment of childhood cancer. In twenty years, JulieDance has raised $550,000 for pediatric cancer organizations. JulieDance is a 501 (c)(3) organization.
