"My name is Jean-Yves Esquerre, founder and director of European School of Ballet located in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. I first knew Julia Regi as a performer with the Hamburg Ballet. She was a strong, charismatic, and sensitive artist who worked throughout her entire career with exceptional masters from whom she has learned the best there is to know in our profession. We reconnected years later when I welcomed to my school a few of the dancers she trained. Her passion and dedication, transpires through the work of her students. Her sense of classicism, her knowledge of ballet and her determination to reach the highest goals will have her become undoubtedly one of the most prominent pedagogues in Australia. I am looking forward to seeing her work develop and I will always be happy to welcome more of her students into our professional school. Sincerely,"

"To introduce myself, my name is Anna Grabka. I was a professional ballet dancer for 23 years. First, as first soloist with The Polish National Ballet for 5 years and then as principal dancer with The Hamburg Ballet for 18 seasons. Currently I am an Associate Professor of Classical Dance at the Tanz Akademie Zürich (TAZ). I remember Julia as a student at the Hamburg Ballet School, she was very talented dancer.Then we met at the International ballet competition YAGP in NYC. Julia's passion is dance, her students were solid and professionally prepared for the competition. Julia is a competent dance practitioner. She is able to naturally motivate and inspire her students to work creatively. She cares about the development of her pupils. Her students perform well on stages in Europe and the USA."

"I studied under Julia for two years. In that time Julia taught me the importance of discipline and hard work. Julia's classes were always well thought out and demanded the very best from everyone of her students. In my time under Julia’s direction, through her vast world wide contacts, Julia helped expose me to international competitions and helped introduce me to directors and teachers around the world. She was instrumental in creating many opportunities for me to dance in international galas as well as dancing with professional companies and professional schools. Her passion and love for this art form was pivotal in my early training and she is one of the reasons I'm a professional dancer today."

Joel Woellner, Principal Artist Queensland Ballet

"I wouldn't be the dancer I am today without Julia's constant devotion to our art. Her passion for passing on her years of knowledge to her students is invaluable and I will cherish everything she has taught me when she was my teacher.Beyond the studio she also taught me how to take on what the ballet world can throw at you and that has made me the professional I am today."

Evan Loudon Principal Artist, Scottish Ballet
