Miss Julena was born and raised in the small town of Lacombe, Alberta. At three, Julena started dance classes, slowly adding courses in tap, jazz, ballet, lyrical, hip hop, contemporary, acrobatics, and musical theatre. Julena attended many dance competitions and travelled with her studio performing in New York, on a cruise ship, and in the Disneyland parade.
Upon graduating high school, Julena began to teach at the studio she trained at while growing up. Julena has obtained her Acrobatic Arts Module 1 certification and has attended many dance conventions, including GSP and Dance Teacher Expo. Julena is currently attending the University of Lethbridge, enrolled in the Bachelor of Arts in Music and a Bachelor of Education. Julena is thrilled to be joining the Starbound Dance Center family to continue sharing her love of dance and teaching!
