Motion Exchange is the Joy of Motion outreach program and reflects Joy of Motion’s commitment to youth development in schools and communities throughout the greater Washington, D.C. area. Epitomizing our guiding principle that Dance is for Everyone, Motion Exchange ensures that the profound benefits of dance reach all corners of our community by offering free & low-cost programs.

You will find in-school and after-school Joy of Motion dance programs at 12 DC public, charter, and independent schools and partner sites in six wards of the city, reaching more than 500 young people.
