Julia Kane is a dancer, teacher, and choreographer based in NYC. She is currently on faculty at Broadway Dance Center, teaching Jazz classes for BDC Online.
In 2017, Julia Kane Dance Collective was established while Julia was undergoing chemotherapy for Lymphoma, and officially debuted at Jazz at Lincoln Center (in APAP's Booking Dance Festival) shortly after. In 2019, Julia choreographed a full length performance, Cultivated Chaos, to benefit Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. Both performances were sold out, raising over $1,000. Following Chaos, Julia worked as Associate Choreographer to Zanza Steinberg for ALMA NYC's debut of YELLOW; and she had the pleasure of working with ALMA again for FECUND: A Virtual Gala.
As an educator, Julia 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 Broadway Dance Center Children and Teens.
Julia holds a BFA degree in Dance, is a graduate of the Broadway Dance Center Professional Semester, and of Long Island High School for the Arts (under the direction of Janice Aguilera and Shirlene Blake). Today, she continues to train consistently throughout NYC, where she is mentored by Michelle Barber. When she is not dancing, you can find Julia binge watching SVU, or trying out a new cookie recipe!

Established in 2017, the Julia Kane Dance Collective is a project-based dance company comprised of varying artists in the NYC area. Through the company, Julia strives to captivate audiences by seamlessly combining elements of technical jazz dance with contemporary movement. Julia's choreographic work has been reviewed as “Strong, dynamic, and beautiful,” while “imbuing a sense of strength through bold, cohesive movements.”
Premiering onstage at Jazz at Lincoln Center in the Booking Dance Festival, the company has since performed at venues around NYC, including Dixon Place, Salvatore Capezio Theater at Peridance, Manhattan Movement and Arts Center, at the JCE Jazz Choreography Project, KLICK'T's iDance4aCure Benefit, Peridance's APEX Showcase, and The NYC Choreographer's Forum, among others.
In September 2019, Julia presented a full length show, Cultivated Chaos, to benefit Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center as PMT's Artist in Residence. The two sold out performances raised over $1,000 for Dr. Matthew Matasar's Lymphoma Survivorship Program.
