Juliana Kelly began her dance training at the age of three and studied multiple genres. Since 2004, her focus has shifted exclusively to tap. She joined Downbeats Tap Company under the direction of Cathy Duncan, performing in East Coast Tap Conference (ECTC), Taking the Rhythm Train, Embrace the Rhythm, Toronto's Live in Culture Campaign and many other shows across Ontario. In 2006 she joined Shawn Byfield’s Funk Factory National Tap Dance Ensemble, headlining events like The Feats Festival (Edmonton, AB), Live in Rhythm, and Deloitte's 50 Best Managed Companies Gala. Currently Juliana works as a contributing artist with the Toronto Rhythm Initiative, has performed in eight TRI shows to date, and has been assisting Allison Toffan with the TRI Youth Ensemble since 2011. This year, she will also be co-producing the Youth Ensemble. Most recently, Juliana spent time studying abroad with Heather Cornell, and performed in Rhythm Lives! (Montreal Tap Festival) alongside Arthur Duncan and members of Tapestry Dance Company, as well as performing in the Inaugural Toronto Body Percussion Festival.
Juliana's love of dance has also led her to many teaching opportunities across Ontario including guest choreography, master classes, summer intensives and workshops. Her main focus is as a competitive teacher and choreographer, with her specialization in tap. She has received multiple overall and choreography awards for her work for creativity, musicality and technical excellence. Juliana strives to spread the love and respect of tap dance from a technical, historical, musical and artistic standpoint.
