Washington, D.C. – Joy of Motion Dance Company, a dance instruction studio which will celebrate its 45th anniversary this fall, announced today that it will begin drop-in classes for adults beginning Tuesday, July 13. All classes will be held at Joy of Motion’s studio, located in the Atlas Theater at 1333 H St. NE.

The full schedule of classes and instructors can be found here.

Krystal Odom, interim Executive Director of Joy of Motion Dance Company, released the following statement, announcing the new schedule:

“Opening the doors for the youth programs earlier this week was an exciting day for Joy of Motion, and I can’t wait to welcome our adult dancers and instructors back to the studio. From the instructors who have been with Joy of Motion for many years to the new teaching artists, our schedule offers dance classes for all abilities and styles. After having to close our doors more than a year ago to ensure the safety of our dancers, instructors and staff, I am overjoyed to be able to welcome home our dance community and see them face-to-face once again!”


Since its founding in October of 1976, Joy of Motion has grown from a small Cleveland Park studio with just three instructors to the “the area’s most comprehensive dance institution” (Washington Post). While numbers have grown, our core philosophy has remained strong and constant. At Joy of Motion, dance is not the province of an elite or talented few. Dance belongs to us all, and we all belong in the studio and on the stage — growing and learning, moving and creating. The Joy of Motion studio is now located at the Atlas Theater in the heart of the H Street corridor in Northeast Washington, D.C.
