Julija was born in Visaginas in 1989 where she started dancing. When she was just 11 years of age she came to Vilnius to enter the ballet school. Her first appearance on stage was special – she played a bird during the play „Tchaikovsky Album for Children“; suddenly a strong light blinded her and she fell off the stage. This, however, did not stop her from dancing further and Julija continues to discover more dance directions.
