Featured Testimonial

I love to dance and have taken many different types of dance classes, but new experiences always tend to feel a bit awkward. Julia immediately made me feel welcome by individually selecting for me a beautiful copper-colored silk from her collection, as she did for each class member. She then went on to explain how she designed her unique program to help build strength and fluidity in the body, as opposed to many other dance forms/programs that often tear the body down over time. Her goal is not for her students to mimic her exact moves, but instead she encourages them to find their own unique inner-dancers and indeed once the class started moving, the studio was transformed into a beautiful collage of multicolored swaths of flowing silk. I loved her varied and eclectic music choices and found her class to be liberating, challenging and fun. I left feeling lighter, more feminine and fluid in my movements, like a piece of silk floating in the wind. - Julie Mallin

I thoroughly enjoyed the Silk Moves class. You are brilliant to have come up with this way of aesthetic conditioning that is so satisfying to see and feel. When I was dancing and singing along (which I could not resist) and seeing the colors swirling all around, it was like being in an exhilarating, ecstatic trance. Perfect! - Lisa Callan, NYT Media Group

It is a series of love and care for self. At times I felt as if my body was filled up with magic bubbles and floated in the air. I was consumed by endorphins of happiness! After such a therapy the body responded and presented me with smooth, glowing silky skin, not only on the face but all over the body. So you see the cause and the effect! -Sveta, software developer, Moscow


Frequently Asked Questions

Why Silk Moves ?

Silk Moves was created for my female clients and inspired by dance and fashion. Many urban women, having to take care of career and familly, have very little time for themselves. They often have to choose between working out or going out to have fun. Silk Moves combines fitness and playtime for women. Silk invites us to play a dress up, because it always flatters the body. Every woman knows that trying on different outfits is a workout! So, with my background in performing arts and fitness I combined a theatrical dress-up with exercise for a chance to exercise feminity, sensuality, sassiness and playfulness, as well as beautiful aesthetic lines and curves. It's hard to express feminine side in the practical, fast-paced career and family life. Only something absolutely unique and beautiful, such as lustrous silk flow can take modern women's mind off things and immerse them into realm of sheer delight and playfulness. Even an hour of Silk Moves's stretched, expansive movement, beautiful visuals and comforting sensations of silk recharge the mind, shape up the body and refresh your unique feminine essence.

What we did was not just pretty dance moves. Those beautiful specially selected moves affect woman's health and form a graceful desirable physique.

My husband and children noticed that immediately!- Irina Dobrova, manager, Moscow, Russia

It fills my soul to be in your classes. This Silk Moves workshop was especially wonderful not only for me but I could see everyone else enjoying themselves, too. I came to class very tired and was captivated right away by the colors and special quality of silk. It is a truly sensuous and also a spirit lifting material. I loved the combination you gave of learning how to use the silk with expression in harmony with the music. Thank you so much for the way you are always exploring and sharing your searches for dance that moves us in so many ways. - Roberta Altman
