Jo Ann Coker
Jo Ann's passions are music, dance, and organizing events, which she has done for over 20 years. As a lover and collector of music, she is blessed to have an outlet for this obsession. Jo Ann is currently a professional DJ (corporate events, weddings, etc.), event producer (Camp Balboa Seattle, Balboa Boot Camp, Om Fusion, First Friday Live Music, Camp Jitterbug co-producer), dance instructor (Balboa, Lindy Hop and Ballroom), and also DJs for Lindy Hop, Balboa, Blues, and Fusion dancers.
For Lindy Hop and Balboa, she loves playing uptempo music that "swings", and likes to push the range of tempos to allow dancers to challenge themselves. Jo Ann has DJ events such as Hawaii Lindy Balboa Exchange, Camp Jitterbug, Northwest Balboa Fest, All Balboa Weekend, Camp Hollywood, and Lindy Focus, Rocky Mountain Balboa Blowout, Denver Fusion Exchange, Seattle Fusion Festival, and Rain City Blues.
