Featured Teacher – Miss Julie
Each month, we recognize and highlight one of our many incredible teachers. This month, we’ll meet Miss Julie who teaches at Tippi Toes® Cincinnati!
Hi Miss Julie!
Thanks for taking the time to talk to us to tell us a little about your experience as a dance teacher at Tippi Toes®.
Tell us a little about your dance history. Did you dance before working at Tippi Toes®? Have you taught before?
I did dance when I was (way) younger! I took ballet and jazz classes and performed in several recitals. I loved to make up dances to perform for our grade school talent shows too!
What do you enjoy most about teaching?
One of the things I love the most is earning the kids trust and love! I love to see their excitement to see me and dance with me. I love the stories they are so anxious to share with me during our circle time (or even in the middle of class) 🙂
Tell us about a favorite Tippi Toes® moment from class.
I can’t really say I have a single favorite moment – there are just so many moments that have touched my heart! I love these kids smiles, their cute little wiggles, hearing their laughter and seeing the pride that shines on their faces when they can do what I ask successfully. I love that they are excited to show me something that is important to them. I love being a positive part of their day!
What do you like to do for fun when not dancing with sweet kiddos?!
When I am not with these kiddos I am usually with my own (4) children. I love to watch my kids excel at the things they love – soccer, football, lacrosse, volleyball and piano. They keep me pretty busy with their activities. Family is so important to me and that is where I feel fulfilled!! I also teach fitness classes at several health clubs in my area. I love to meet new people and help them reach their health and fitness goals too!
