Julee Merrill Csuri, one of the great teachers, inspirers, creative, talented and spiritual beings has left our world. The world of dance and art have truly lost a most genuine, loving and caring person. We at the Academy of Dance Arts are proud and honored to say that she was a part of us for more than 30 years. We as people, teachers and students learned so much from Julee. Not only as a teacher, but how to deal with life. Her strength, positive outlook and always the ability to see the brighter side; never having a negative thought or feeling. She was amazing in her way of sensing when someone was feeling sad or down. Her interaction with little dancers from 3 -5 years old was in itself a learning lesson for us all. Nobody who ever had Julee as a teacher will ever forget her.
She fought her last few years with grace and strength and never gave up.
