A mild mannered Girl, Ms. Clark Kent has some super attributes. "She transforms into a new person on stage" says the daily news. Her incredible strength and skill literally make it seem like she can fly across the stage in a single leap.   She can move faster than a speeding bullet which has made her the perfect choice for all those fast change ballets.  

The writing is on the wall, Julie can and often does!
