Welcome to Julie's World!

Julie Pasqual is a renaissance woman whose first art form was dance. She is a student of renowned ballet teacher Dick Andros, and a graduate of New York City’s High School of Performing Arts. Julie has appeared with ballet and modern dance companies, and her work in musical theatre has taken her to 48 of the 50 states.

As an actress she has performed in everything from Shakespeare to the work of inner-city teenage playwrights. As a clown she is part of the Big Apple Circus Clown Care Unit, performing as Dr. Ima Confused for pediatric patients in New York City hospitals.

Her storytelling work encompasses all of her performance skills, (along with her knowledge of American Sign Language and occasionally, her stilt walking ability) and she has told at venues such as the Kennedy Center, the New Jersey Storytelling Festival, The Connecticut Storytelling Festival, and at numerous schools, libraries, museums, festivals, and even weddings!

Julie was chosen to record three stories for the Cotsen Children’s Library in Princeton University, and she is the voice for several children’s and young adult audio books at the Andrew Heiskill Library for the Blind and Physically Handicapped in New York City. Her written short stories have won several prizes in Byline Magazine; and Julie would like it known that she is a whiz with a crochet hook, and bakes a mean cookie!
