Julie Kleiner Davis is thrilled to be a part of the Victory Dolls. Julie was born and raised in Coral Springs, Florida and has been a part of the South Florida theatre scene she was 9 years old. She is a graduate of New York University where she received a BFA in Theatre and her premedical certificate. Julie had many opportunities in New York including a Broadway Tour, starring in National commercials and playing a feature role in the cult film Camp. Her stars were shining bright in the Big Apple, but love conquers all! She reconnected with a young man from her Coral Springs neighborhood while in New York, he stole her heart then got a job back in Florida, and off she went back home to start a life together. Julie is now super busy being a professional performer, acting coach, director, choreographer, and family photographer. However, her favorite role is still wife and mother of three beautiful children. It’s a chaotic and busy life, and she wouldn’t trade it for the world!
When I saw the initial post about the Victory Dolls, I immediately contacted my friend Shelley Keelor asking how I could get involved. I would have done almost anything to be a part of such an incredible group of women! I adore this music and the ability to add my single voice to create a collective harmonious sound. I am so grateful to be a Doll and to share this gift with audiences soon!
Aside from Julie’s various career opportunities, Julie loves to travel with her family. She was very fortunate to have grandparents and parents who have instilled a passion for adventure and exploration. Some of her favorite destinations have been Southern Africa and Iceland. Her husband Howard also likes to get off the beaten path, and we always look forward to packing up our little kids and showing them the world. Julie is at peace when alongside nature. She is frequently caught birding early in the morning on vacations and is never without her camera to capture some of nature’s most brilliant scenery.
Julie is most proud of her children’s and students’ accomplishments. With a lack of arts education in schools, she works tirelessly to give children the gift of music and dance. Her after school hours coaching young talent or watching her kids put on a play in her family room are equally as rewarding. With mentors and parents who have set the bar high, she strives every day to pay it forward.
