Introduction: We love introducing people to the world of Ballroom, Latin, and Swing dancing! And helping those with the basics to grow their skills for greater competency through refining their skills and technique. We offer group and private lessons in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. Group classes typically are offered at Riverside Performing Arts, Clark College Community Ed, Firstenburg, and Longview's McClelland Center Parks & Recs. We also teach lessons at dances in North Portland and Vancouver. Joseph has been teaching ballroom dancing all his adult life and Julieann has for 12 years. Our base for PRIVATE LESSONS are in VANCOUVER, WA 98662. Private lessons are a great way to begin learning the rules of dance etiquette, partner hold and movement, and steps in a variety of dances. Away from the distraction of people, music, and partner rotation of group classes, students are emboldened to focus on the fundamentals. And, in the private setting, we, as instructors, can discover quickly what changes are needed to guarantee your success on the dance floor! Our students tell us that our classes are the most fun and easily understood in the entire Portland/ Vancouver metro area. As a result, we enjoy deep satisfaction in knowing 1000s of people have grown in their skills in social dancing and are enjoying all of the benefits. We look forward to assisting you in the wonderful world of dance! Happy Dancing, Julieann and Joseph Platt

Private Dance Lessons

My fiancé and I are dealing with Having to navigate our October wedding during this incredibly challenging and volatile time. This has provided us with a very positive outlet and is giving us the space to feel excited about sharing our first dance as husband and wife. We are so great full to be working with Julieann! She is helping us choreograph our first dance and teaching us a lot of basic stuff that we can easily use whenever we dance. We also have felt very safe working with her during the pandemic. We all wear masks and sanitize our hands before and after our private lessons. Would recommend for anyone getting married or for any couple interested in a healthy outlet together!

Thank you for your review, Christina and Sam! When you brought me Your Song, which was not at all typical, it was a bit of a challenge, but I knew together we would have a blast creating a memorable First Dance! The energy that you both bring to your song is contagious! You brought some moves which we incorporated together to build a fun, energetic, and magical 1st Dance! You gave yourselves plenty of time to learn your dance and now with a month away, I am happy and relieved to say that you are ready!! I'm am looking forward to the video! Wishing you a lifetime of love, Julieann

Private Dance Lessons

We reached out to Ballroom Dance with Us for help with our first dance. Juliann and Joseph are great to work with whether you're an experienced dancer or a beginner. They are very supportive and enthusiastic about helping us make our first dance as beautiful as it can be. In addition, every lesson has been tailored to us. Juliann takes everything into consideration, including our style, our level of dance experience, and our comfort level when giving us new material to learn. We've had a lot of fun, learning new moves and gaining confidence. We've had two lessons so far, and plan to have many more.

Thank you Emily for your great review. We are enjoying helping you craft your Wedding Dance with fun Bachata and Rumba moves! Can't wait to see the video of your finished Wedding Dance danced in September! Congratulations on starting early! Julieann

Wedding Dance Lessons

We worked with Julianne to feel more comfortable dancing in front of guests at our wedding. As a point of reference- before any dance lessons my fiancé refused to dance with me at an event we attended (we’ve been together 6 years!). Julieanne worked with us over the course of 4 or 5 lessons to learn a dance we felt comfortable with and would look good for our guests to watch. Overall our confidence has increased a ton! Couldn’t have done it without her!

Hi Allie, I appreciate hearing your experiences here in learning your First Dance! What a gift you have given me to teach you both to learn to dance together! It's such a pleasure to see your confidence and skills in learning not only your Wedding Dance, but also real world dance steps! Can't wait to see your Wedding Dance Video! I am so proud of you both! When things settle down, keep taking lessons with me and you will enjoy dancing with your love all through your married life!! Wishing you happiness always, Julieann

She was great! Clohe and I were a bit nervous because we had never done something like this before but she made us both feel comfortable and was very encouraging.
