Signor Joseph Hazazer was born in Philadelphia in 1835 and claimed to be of Spanish ancestry. He taught dance in several locations in Minnesota before becoming the instructor of deportment, etiquette and dancing at the Naval Academy at Annapolis. He set up the first-known dance school in Nanaimo, British Columbia in 1867 and then could be found in St. John’s, Newfoundland by the early 1870s. He maintained a school in Montreal from 1872 to at least 1875 before settling permanently in Baltimore by 1880.
