About Julius

Hi my name is Julius and I have a passion for percussion! I have over over 10 years experience playing drums from around the world.

Step Free Dance is a service which promotes personal development. It began in the hearts and minds of 3 artists who often enjoyed showcasing their talent. Since then it has grown into one of West London's most diverse arts service. However, SFD is not just about the arts! Its about helping you discover your confidence while developing your musicality along the way. Bringing you a worldwide variety of music and dance through our workshops and performances such as Afro Ballet and The Fola Project. We believe a close community is a stronger one. So, we intend to share our cultural understanding with you! Join us, to start your journey today.

Julius fulfilled the brief and beyond! His drumming was superb and made our party so memorable. He understood completely what we wanted for the evening and delivered beyond. I hope to work with him again.

Step Free Dance delivered a great performance for our # AppetiteforApprenticeships event. They were pleasant to work with and added vibrancy to our programme. We would recommend hiring Step Free Dance for corporate functions.
