Began her ballet studies in Curitiba, Brazil at age of 6. Trained with The Royal Academy of Dancing method, at 19 she joined the Ballet Teatro Guaíra School and two years later the Ballet Guaíra Company, one of the main dance companies in Brazil. In her path from school to a professional company, she had opportunity to work with mentors such as Ana Botafogo, Marcia Haydeé, Boris Storojkov, Hugo Delavalle, Serge Lavoie, among others. Afterwards, she joined Cisne Negro Dance Company in São Paulo for a Nutcracker season. Her contemporary training began in Ballet Guaira but was also influenced by choreographers like Mario Nascimento and Alejandro Ahmed from Cena 11 Company.

Absolutely passionate about dancing, she joined many dance festivals and seminars, danced in Musicals, where she danced other styles, such as jazz, heels and commercial. Juliana believes that as many styles as you dance, the better is your body consciousness, the better dancer you can become.

She started teaching ballet in 2003, and apart from guiding her students, Juliana looks forward to their evolution as dancers and human beings. In 2020 she was offered a place to study in Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance in London, to study contemporary dance, choreography and choreology. Learning never stops!
