Julie Oram

Julie became a professional dancer in 1987. She has danced her way all over the world and appeared in film and on TV in commercials, pop videos and shows.

Julie was a co-founder of Authentic Jazz Dance Company ‘Zoots and Spangles’ with Ryan Francois whom she partnered for 9 years. The company had a very hectic performance schedule during the late ’80s and early ’90s – often on tour for months at a time in Germany, Switzerland, Austria and more of Europe, and USA, including the movie Swing Kids in 1992 and in the UKs longest running TV series ‘Come Dancing’

Most people who have been taught by her were taught in London as she founded Jitterbugs in Marble Arch in 1994, a of the current UK teachers (Lizzie Abrahams is one of them!) served their ‘apprenticeships’ with Julie.
