Outreach programs at Joy of Motion, when we are able to operate in-person, encompass the dance-based programs that we provide in partnership with DC schools, organizations, and agencies, aiming to strengthen education and local communities through dance. We believe that 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 local schools in and around the District of Columbia.
  • 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.
