Blending beauty, fantasy and comedy, Julia's crowd-pleasing belly dance shows feature exciting choreography, flowing veil work, Egyptian folkloric cane, percussive zills, scorching drum solo, a suspenseful sword-balancing act, and playful audience participation. Her upbeat performances have been enjoyed at the California State Fair, Rakkasah West Middle Eastern Dance Festival, Sacramento Ballet Gala, Sacramento World Music & Dance Festival, and Odell Johnson Performing Arts Center.
A certified belly dance fitness instructor, Julia loves sharing her professional knowledge and has taught at world-renowned Hot Pot Studios.
