Motion Exchange encompasses the dance-based programs that we provide in partnership with DC schools, organizations, and agencies, aiming to strengthen education and local communities through dance.

By exchanging resources and expertise, we can keep our communities in motion!

Our Motion Exchange initiatives include:

  • School Programs: on-site dance instruction, integration, and residencies at District of Columbia and Prince George’s County schools.
  • School Performances: professional concerts, designed (and offered for free) for local school groups and teachers
  • Step Ahead (Summer): youth development program for older teens who love the arts, based at Joy of Motion | H Street

In collaboration with our partners and students, we are creating dynamic opportunities for dance — both in and beyond the studio.
