JULIE SHOWALTER IS LITERALLY THE COOLEST JUDGE YOU WILL EVER HAVE EVER
I love Julie! Except one time, when I was like 8, I was waiting for the rest of my school to come to a SPD show and she was in the practice room. She asked me what my favorite kind of soup was and I was really scared.
OH MY GOD IM LAUGHING SO HARD
JULIE IS THE BEST HER HATS KILL ME
She judged my first round at the 2012 Oireachtas and they had just announced recalls and I was so excited I recalled since it was such a small group that I had to run to the bathroom. She was in front of me in line and asked if I had recalled. When I told her yes, she said “I figured you would. Most tall dancers look clumsy and don’t know what do do with their bodies but you didn’t look like that.”
She basically congratulated me for not being a fumbling oaf on stage but I’ve never been more flattered.
I think Julie Showalter is secretly a professor at Hogwarts.
