Julianne: Since a very early age, Julianne has been dancing, performing, and competing both in classical dance such as ballet, tap and jazz, as well as other areas, including various sports and horseback riding. For 10 years, she trained and performed in traditional dance, but was involved in so many activities she couldn’t do them all. She then followed her passion of riding and showing Arabian horses, accumulating numerous local, regional, and even national awards. After high school, she began attending college at Santa Clara University, where she received a Bachelor's in Business Management and a Bachelor's in Psychology in just 4 years.  Julianne also holds a Master's of Business Administration from the W.P. Carey School of Business. 


A year after she graduated college, Julianne discovered her true passion in ballroom dancing. She quickly began training and competing as an amateur at various ballroom competitions both nationally and internationally, winning top honors at almost every competition she attended.

Julianne has now returned to the Professional Dance competition circuit with her new partner Nikolay Kralev, and they are already challenging for top honors in the rising star events.

Julianne is a certified professional dance instructor with Dance Vision International Dance Association (DIVIDA).  Additionally, she competes with her students across the United States in American Smooth, American Rhythm, International Standard and International Latin

Our very first showdance together in 2013 - seems like only yesterday! 


Put together at short notice, Two teachers at the same studio never having danced with each other before, Working hard on this routine brought us closer. This was the turning point, we obviously had strong feelings for each other, and shortly afterwards decided to make it a permanent partnership.

Now in 2021 - dancing in our own studio!
