Youth Dance Companies

Joy of Motion Dance Center delights in providing dance companies for budding youth performers. JOMDC’s youth companies have performed at the Kennedy Center’s Millennium Stage, the National Cherry Blossom Festival, Imagination Bethesda, Magical Montgomery, other local festivals, in their own concerts, and the annual Youth Spring Concert. Admission in all youth dance companies is by audition only.
