Joy Online Live: Modern with Tiffany Haughn
June 2 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 7:00 pm on Tuesday, repeating until June 28, 2020
About Today’s Class: We will begin with a warm-up including floor work, spinal articulation and plies, footwork, drop swings, adagio and battlement swings. Then we will do a short 1-minute combo. Dancers need at least 2 years of training. Class is very stationary but a 10×10 space would be best if possible. If you are on carpet, you might want socks. If on tile or wood, barefoot is best.

Joy of Motion Dance Center is a non-profit institution that provides over $100,000 in tuition assistance to low-income families annually. Traditionally, 80% of our revenue comes from our Joy of Motion dancers taking classes at our studios. In this uncertain time, we ask our public to consider donating to Joy of Motion. While canceling classes and performances is necessary for the health of all of our dancers, staff, and volunteers, it represents a huge financial loss for our organization. Please consider making a donation to Joy of Motion during our COVID-19 closure so that we can quickly return to offering the dance classes you love once we are able to be back in the studio. Donate today to help.
