World renowned choreographer and instructor Julia Wetzel lives in the San Francisco Bay Area with her husband and two daughters.

Ever since her ballet lessons at age 5, Julia has always known that dancing would become one of her life's passions. Although her career path led her to software development for some of Silicon Valley's best known companies like Apple Computer and Sun Microsystems, throughout the years, she continued to explore many different forms of dance including ballroom, hip hop, jazz and belly dancing in her spare time. She was first introduced to line dancing through Country & Western venues in the early 1990's. However, it was in 2008 that she finally found her true passion in modern line dancing.

In 2011, Julia started choreographing line dances. Success came early with her first choreography - INNOCENT. Other hits like MISTY BLUE and TREAT ME RIGHT soon followed.

The popularity of Julia's dances continues to grow with releases like BETTER WHEN I'M DANCIN', RING MY BELLS, DEAR FUTURE HUSBAND, SAY SOMETHING and DOWN TO THE WIRE. To date, her dances are well loved globally and make regular appearances in the Top Ten lists of most international charts. 

In 2012, Julia became an instructor of line dancing. Always focusing on technique, style and musicality, Julia has taught line dancing to classes of varying levels and sizes. She has also traveled extensively conducting workshops at major line dancing events worldwide.

For the future, Julia hopes to continue her work in line dance choreography and instruction. She welcomes the opportunity to travel and meet dancers from around the globe.
