Chapel Hill, NC
At Nashville Ballet since 2010
Julia Eisen started her dance training at The Ballet School of Chapel Hill, N.C. where she studied ballet, modern and jazz. She was also a member of the internationally recognized North Carolina Youth Tap Ensemble. Her extensive preparation to become a professional dancer led her to the University of North Carolina School of the Arts in Winston-Salem, N.C. After graduating, she went on to become a trainee with the Richmond Ballet in Virginia, and was invited to perform with Terpsicorps Theater of Dance in Asheville, N.C.
In 2010, Julia moved to Nashville to join Nashville Ballet's second company, NB2. She was promoted to apprentice in 2012 and then to full company member in the spring of 2013. She has performed in memorable works such as Paul Vasterling’s Carmina Burana, Jiri Kylian’s Petite Mort, George Balanchine’s Serenade and Gina Patterson’s …but the flowers have yet to come, which was created exclusively for Nashville Ballet.
When Julia is not at The Martin Center for Nashville Ballet, she teaches ballet and jazz to aspiring dancers. She also enjoys exploring all of the entertainment options that Nashville has to offer. She embraces her home by frequenting the local live music scene, museums, restaurants and outdoor activities.
