Name: Juliann Marraccini
How long have you been dancing? I have been dancing for 17 years!
Favorite dance/style genre? My favorite genres of dance are Ballet and Contemporary but I love to take as many styles as I can!
Why do you dance? I absolutely love being able to dance and move my body. It’s a great expressive and creative outlet that allows me to not only perform and collaborate with others, but it’s also extremely therapeutic in many ways. Being able to have an outlet like dance is such a blessing! I’d say that’s one of the many reasons why dance is such a big part of my life.
What do you do when you're not dancing (occupation/other hobbies)? Aside from dancing in college and teaching dance at my studio, I enjoy being active through other activities such as Pilates, running and Cross-Training to name a few. In addition I have the opportunity to help with managing a few larger scale Instagram accounts from a managing perspective, it’s a lot of fun! I also enjoy a good book, baking and hanging out with my friends!
If you could go on tour with any artist, who would it be? I would love to be a backup dancer for someone like Ariana Grande! Her performances are always so strong and fierce, I think that would be so fun to be involved in such a strong performance!
Words to live (and dance) by? I love the quote “you are who you practice to be” I think that’s super important in creating and becoming the person we want to be ultimately.
