A note from the founder and designer--
My name is Julia Cinquemani. I am a professional ballerina with Miami City Ballet and formerly a Principal Dancer with Los Angeles Ballet. Altogether, I have danced professionally for over a decade. Ballet is first and foremost in my life, but I have always had entrepreneurial interests and a love for fashion. I started designing, sewing and selling wrap skirts at my hometown dancewear store in Dallas, TX at age 14. After I raised enough funds with that small business, I decided to invest in more ideas I had for creating better fitting dancewear.
I established Jule Dancewear in 2011 with a goal as a young professional dancer and female entrepreneur to “reshape dancewear”. My mission is to design and produce dancewear that offers support, conforms to all body types, is high quality, and incorporates the latest in fashion with a commitment to made in the USA.
When I created Jule Dancewear, I was in my teenage years and my body was going through a lot of changes. I found the need to create a leotard that offered coverage and support for dancers with curves.
I hated that my ill-fitting leotards were making me self conscious in a profession where confidence is key. I wondered, are there any leotards on the market that cater to this need, and that are understood and designed by a dancer? That is when I decided to incorporate the support of a sports bra into a leotard. As a result, we are known for reshaping the dancewear mold to support all body types. I now design all types of dancewear I see a need for. Every detail of each design is carefully tailored to function and flatter all body types. I test and choose the highest quality fabrics and incorporate the latest in fashion. All products are made in the USA where quality is high and our standards are met. I believe in the importance of doing our part to sustain our local community of garment manufacturers in my hometown of Dallas, TX.
It brings me so much joy to see my designs come to life on my peers at Miami City Ballet. In this industry self-love and confidence is very important. If I can help someone feel good about themselves with something as simple as what they are wearing, then I feel like I have done my job. Every dancer should have the confidence they deserve!
