VanPort Jazz is a musical ensemble dedicated to maintaining the tradition and innovation of Big Band music. Over the past decade, the ensemble has evolved from a local community group focusing on early swing music, to its current roster of 17 talented amateur, semi-professional, and retired professional musicians playing from an eclectic book of some 300 charts. VanPort Jazz is based in Vancouver, Washington, and performs throughout Washington and Oregon.

Dance Instructors Joseph and Julieann have a passion for teaching everyone to dance – from teenagers to 90 year olds. They are especially well known for making classes fun and easy.
The duo have offered classes together for 12 years. Julieann has honed her dancing skills through years of belly dancing, yoga and the creative arts. Joseph has taught ballroom dancing since the age of 18, when he began his dancing career as an instructor for Arthur Murray Studios in Davenport, IA. While at Arthur Murray’s, he took several students on to regional dance competitions in the Midwest, many receiving gold medals.

“Joseph and Julieann are the most enthusiastic and supportive dance teachers imaginable. The classes include people of varying ability but everyone is made to feel successful. Their warmth and sometimes silliness is infectious and makes for a fun time for everyone.” – Mary P.
