Julio Jean

Julio Jean is a renowned master Haitian dance teacher and choreographer with 20 years of experience, and blends traditional Haitian forms with modern and contemporary dance to create compelling movement narratives. As a teacher, he pays great attention to detail while bringing forth the joy and beauty of the dances.

Julio studied with Lavinia Williams, a company member of Katherine Dunham, at the National School of Arts in Haiti. In 1989, he moved to New York City, and worked directly with Katherine Dunham teaching traditional Haitian dance for her teacher trainings. He has been a guest teacher at Webster University in Saint Louis and Humboldt University, and has taught workshops in San Francisco, Milwaukee, and at the Dance New England Dance Camp in Poland, Maine.

Among other venues, Julio’s performances have been seen at Alvin Ailey for National Dance week and at Summer Stage in 2010. Currently, Julio teaches in New York City and at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center. Julio is also a songwriter and composer and released the album, “Kenbe la,” which encompasses the panorama of traditional Haitian music.
