Curious by nature, Julien is an all-rounder. Engineer by training, he is passionate about computer science and is a technology enthusiast. Black belt in Shotokan Karate, Julien practiced, studied and taught martial arts in France for more than 20 years. Always eager to go on stage, he also participated to multiple theater performances, and sharpened his listening and improvisation skills through improvisational comedy.
He discovered partner dancing in 2005, starting with the French style “Rock’n roll” dance. Shortly afterwards, he discovered West Coast Swing and fell in love with that dance where he quickly became an All-Star level West Coast Swing dancer.
Very active in the community, Julien is present on all fronts: you will meet him at West Coast Swing parties, social dancing or DJing, teaching classes and even competing at international conventions.
Perfectionist, he likes to pay attention to those details that make the difference and shares his passion with a unique French touch!
