Julie Redl
Actor, Dancer
“You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose.”
-Dr. Seuss

Julie’s love for dance started at a very young age, wearing a tutu in our living room. It has grown over the years. She began her journey in dance recreationally at Jacqueline’s School of Dance at 3 years of age. Julie started to competitively danced at 5 years old, and she was offered to dance her first solo “Shake you groove thing” at only 6 years old. Performing in front of an audience is a passion of hers, dance allows Julie to feel free and express herself.

Julie competed at various dance competitions in Ontario. In her novice solo year, she was awarded a “Shining Star” special award as well as Adjudicators Choice Award “Most Potential Dancer” Novice 7 & under. Another special award she received is “Little Jazz Diva” as well as an invite to the Nationals Elite Dance Team. In 2019, Julie qualified for a Pageant at Bedazzled dance competition and was invited to the World Performers Europe to dance for team Canada. Things took a turn for the worst when she dislocated her elbow 5 days prior to the Bedazzled finals competition. Her dance teacher altered the choreography so she can dance her jazz solo with a cast. Julie placed 2nd in the age division and went into dance off. She finished 3rd place overall with her unexpected accessory.

Acrobatics has also been a part of her life since a young age. Julie started recreational gymnastics at the age of 4, and trained for 2 years. She also did a year of Trampoline and Tumbling classes. Going competitive, Julie had to choose between dance and gymnastics. Even though she chose dance, gymnastics has always played a big role in her dance career. She is gaining many new skills and variations through her training with Katelyn Ettinger at CTRL Acrobatics. Julie is determined to accomplish the impossible and she gives 110 percent every time.

In her spare time Julie loves to hang out with friends, ride her bike and scooter. She likes to go swimming, camping, fishing and the outdoors. Julie enjoys trying new things like ice hockey, skiing, baseball, soccer, golf, bowling, school clubs and track and field.

She can’t wait to see what her future holds!
