Julia welcomes all kinds of opportunities to share her passion for dance.

She has performed at various events including London's Morning Gloryville and Colourfest festival.

A short performance of forró can inspire and bring a little excitement to a dance floor, encouraging others to dance together in pairs or impressing them with an uplifting twist of Brazilian vibes..

Julia has also worked with her brother and dance partner, Andy, to collaborate on a theatre production at Gingerline to include a scene in Brazil where the cast danced forró together in unison to create the perfect atmosphere.


When invited to teach at events big or small, there will likely be a short performance to inspire the crowd.

This video highlights a workshop held at Colourfest in which all ages and abilities joined in and learned the basics of the dance, before Andy and Julia did a short performance before we all danced together.
