Julia Eisen started her dance training at The Ballet School of Chapel Hill, NC where she studied ballet, modern and jazz. She was also a member of the internationally recognized North Carolina Youth Tap Ensemble.

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 NC.
In 2010, Julia moved to Nashville to become a member of Nashville Ballet’s Second Company. She was promoted to Apprentice in 2012. She has performed in memorable works such as Paul Vasterling’s Carmina Burana, ‘Red Riding Hood’ in The Sleeping Beauty, Salvatore Aiello’s Rite of Spring and Gina Patterson’s Anne Frank, created exclusively for Nashville Ballet. She was promoted to full company member in the spring of 2013.
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 has embraced her new home by frequenting the local live music scene, museums, restaurants and outdoor activities.
