    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.

    Elite Academy of Dance, Inverclyde’s only Royal Academy of Dance School of Classical Ballet is cementing its role as a leading ballet training provider with the announcement of a new Patron.
    The school is delighted to announce that once she takes her final bow in role of Cinders after
    17 years as Principal dancer with Scottish Ballet, Bethany Kingsley Garner will become the new Patron of Elite Academy of Dance.
    During the past 17 years she has blown away audiences all over the world with her performances. This has led her to become the face of ballet in Scotland and one of the most famous ballerinas of her generation. Elite are ecstatic and honoured that Bethany has decided to join them as Patron. As Elite strive to provide the very best training in Classical Ballet, and Bethany will naturally add to that with all her experience.  Bethany will
    add to that bringing new ideas and help drive Elite forward.  From our Pre School classes through to our Silverswans classes (for the over 50s), they will all benefit from all her performance experience. This will be invaluable
    and what an inspiration it will be for all our students to be working with Bethany. For Elite,
    Inverclyde and Ballet to attract someone of Bethany’s calibre is actually hard to comprehend.
