LEAP!, Joy of Motion Dance Center’s rigorous training program for adults dedicated to dance, will hold auditions for next season on June 11th, from 5:00-6:30pm at Joy of Motion’s Friendship Heights location.

In a conservatory style setting, beginning, advanced beginning and intermediate level students will effectively learn to articulate the language of dance with skill and passion.  Through a comprehensive curriculum, LEAP! students will study ballet, modern, jazz and repertory five to nine hours each week with some of the metropolitan area’s finest dance educators. A portion of each level’s curriculum will be designed by the student, allowing LEAP! participants more flexibility in their schedules. Dancers will train and learn repertory with Dance Institute Director Helen Hayes, Jenifer Dobbins, Miya Hisaka, Maurice Johnson, Elizabeth Malone and Felipe Oyarzun Moltedo amongst other Joy of Motion instructors.

To culminate the season, LEAP! students will perform an evening of works learned in repertory classes throughout the year.

As an incentive for LEAP! students to supplement their training by taking additional classes, JOMDC offers the professional rate for Community Dance School adult enrollment and drop-in classes for any LEAP! student who is paying full tuition. Dance Metro DC Dance Pass members receive 25% off tuition.
