    Julie Gunn

    About Julie Gunn

    Julie qualified as Teacher with the Royal Academy of Dance in the spring of 2009. It was during 2009 that Julie opened The Elite Academy of Dance. The school has gone from strength to strength from its humble beginings at Inverclyde Academy so much so that Julie opened her private Studio in Greenock in 2010
    Her pupils follow the RAD syllabus and normally sit exams once a year.
    Results have always been above National Averages and this has allowed Julie to place over 10 of her students with Scottish Ballet Associate Programme, The Dance School of Scotland and Ballet West.
