Professional Ballerina, Model, Certified Yoga & Barre Instructor,
Certified Personal Trainer
Founder of The Studio Paris & Creator of Brooklyn Barre®

A French-American citizen, Julie leaves Paris for the US at age 18 to train with Boston Ballet and Joffrey Ballet (Chicago).

Because of an injury, Julie retired early from her ballet career, and moved to NYC where she got a BBA in Entrepreneurship from Baruch College, while getting her RYT-200 Yoga Certification with Pure Yoga and operating the ballet school she founded. Later on, Julie became a certified Equinox Barre Instructor and ISSA Personal Trainer.

One of Equinox’s most sought-after Instructors, Julie would give over 30 group classes to over 750 clients a week in both NYC and The Hamptons, while being a fitness model with Wilhelmina.

During that time, she appears in Vogue Italia, Dance Magazine, Forbes, Hypebeast, and works with brands like Asics, Repetto, Bloch, and is also the face of “The Muse” campaign by Equinox.

Later, Julie moved to Berlin, then to Paris, where she opened The Studio, the first American-style boutique fitness studio right in the center of Paris in 2020. From opening day, The Studio is a success: packed classes, wait lists, and prestigious clients such as the influencer Sabina Socol or the Paris Opera Ballet «Danseuse Etoile” Leonore Baulac.

When lockdown is announced, Julie is amongst the first to switch to online, and she now counts hundreds of clients in almost 20 countries. The Studio + platform counts 200+ online barre workouts.

She is proud to work closely with the prestigious brand Eres (Chanel group), and in the past year only, classes have been featured in Vogue, Elle, Vanity Fair, Marie Claire, Conde Nast Traveler, Hola Living Spain, and Spur Japan.

Julie is one of Guerlain’s Wellness Experts.
