With more than 40 years of history in DC, and more than 100,000 visits to its studios in just the last 12 months, Joy of Motion is in the business of bringing people together – to learn, create, and dance. From hip hop to ballet to flamenco, and from brand-new dancers to seasoned performers, Joy of Motion is home to an eclectic array of styles and students. The Community Dance School welcomes thousands of dancers, ages 2 to 92, through drop-in and weekly classes, while the Dance Institute provides conservatory programs to those pursuing intensive training. A robust youth financial aid program ensures that no one is turned away. Through partnerships with DC schools, DC Youth Rehabilitation Services, and the Summer Youth Employment Program, Motion Exchange strengthens education and bolsters youth development through the power of the arts. You can step up – and keep our neighborhoods in motion!
