At Nashville Ballet since 2011
With 14 years of superior training, Julia Mitchell joined Nashville Ballet as a member of the second company (NB2) in 2011. Her stand-out performance skills earned her a position as an apprentice one year later. In the spring of 2013, Julia was promoted to a full company member.
Julia trained with Boston Ballet for 12 years where she danced in 11 performances of The Nutcracker, plus several works by Balanchine, including A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Serenade and Walpurgisnacht. While at Boston Ballet, Julia also performed in Boston Ballet School’s performance of Bourneville’s Le Conservatoriette and Jorma Elo’s One Concerto. While training at Exploring Ballet with Suzanne Farrell, Julia was honored to perform at the Kennedy Center.
Julia has proven her artistry in performances such as American Dreams by choreographer and Nashville Ballet company dancer Christopher Stuart, as part of Nashville Ballet’s Emergence series. As an apprentice, Julia danced the role of Sapphire in Anniversary Fairies from The Sleeping Beauty, Paul Vasterling's Carmina Burana, and Gina Patterson's ...but the flowers have yet to come.
Julia spends most of her time outside the studio with family in Massachusetts and haning out with her dog Rori.
