Julia Moon, Belly Dance



Julia Moon began her bellydance career in 1990 after many years of theatrical training.  She performed with the award winning Ananka Dance Company at Renaissance Faires, for historical reenactment groups and stage shows performing traditional cabaret and folkloric styles.  After college, she traveled around several states working and dancing.  She was a member of Dancers Supporting Dancers in Albuquerque, NM, then joined a band and moved to the Denver area.  Julia spent a few years dancing at night clubs & restaurants in Colorado with the fondest memories of the former Mataam Fez in Boulder, CO.  She moved to Las Vegas, NV and was the feature dancer at Habib's Persian Cuisine for several years. 

    In 2006 she returned to Colorado with a strong desire to learn ATS (American Tribal Style).  She started her tribal training with Elizabeth Ashner, then joined Tribe Nawaar under the direction of Jennifer Secrist Goran and developed a deep appreciation for the sisterhood of tribal bellydance.  Just after 2012 she lovingly departed from the tribe to refresh some of her traditional cabaret roots, but has continued to study and enjoys fusing the styles.   Julia Moon Embry is the owner of Unicorn Belly Dance Supplies which can be seen at many local events and found online at www.unicorn-bds.com.  Julia teaches ongoing classes at the Buchanan Recreation Center in Evergreen, CO and leads her student troupe, Moonjulz Bellydance.  For more information visit www.juliamoonbellydance.com and www.unicorn-bds.com
