Julia Kane is a dancer, teacher, and choreographer in NYC, currently on Jazz Faculty at Broadway Dance Center. With a vast knowledge and training in technical Jazz, Ballet, and Modern, her work emphasizes stylized reach and release on top of a strong technical foundation. When she's not in the studio, she is working for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, where she mentors high school students to become philanthropists and fundraisers, while advocating for the rights and needs of cancer patients and their families.
in 2021, Julia produced (sun)BURST, a celebratory performance and screening to benefit Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, in partnership with BDC. The event was sold out in-person, and raised 5K for MSK Kids Dance and Movement Therapy Programming. In 2019, she choreographed and presented Cultivated Chaos, which sold out twice, and raised over $1k for MSKCC. Julia Kane Dance Collective premiered in 2018 at Jazz at Lincoln Center (Booking Dance Festival), just one day after Julia's final chemotherapy treatment for Lymphoma.
Along with her own choreographic work, Julia has worked as Associate Choreographer to Zanza Steinberg for ALMA NYC's debut of YELLOW, and had the pleasure of working with the company again for FECUND: A Virtual Gala, and PLACES. She has had the honor of assisting and working with many of BDC’s renowned faculty and mentors throughout her training, including Michelle Barber, Sheila Barker, Ginger Cox, and Jamie Salmon.
Julia holds a BFA in dance, is a graduate of the BDC Professional Semester, and of Long Island HS for the Arts (under direction of Janice Aguilera and Shirlene Blake). As an educator, she has experience working with children as young as preschool age, as well as students of all ages with various physical and developmental disabilities. She has taught and choreographed for many studios in the surrounding NYC area, and for BDC's Children and Teens Program.
When she is not dancing, you can find Julia binge watching SVU, or trying out a new cookie recipe!
