For 45 years, Joy of Motion Dance Center has been dedicated to creating a singular space for learning, growing, and most importantly, dance, in the Greater Washington region. Bringing artists, students, and the community together through meaningful dance experiences is what we do, but now that legacy is in danger. 

Following the challenges of 2020, we need your support to succeed — you, our truly exceptional community of artists, advocates, and allies in dance. Your passion enlivens us, and your support is critical now more than ever as we seek to redefine our organization.

By taking a class or making a donation, you are supporting:

  • Programs celebrating and promoting the diversity and equitable artistic expression of every individual and artist that walks through our doors, virtually or in-person.
  • Classes boasting new and exciting dance styles never before taught at Joy of Motion for learners of all ages and abilities.
  • A more transparent Joy of Motion, where the inputs and ideas of all inform the most robust and strategic direction possible.
  • Outreach into every community in DC, and the reinvigoration of our financial aid program, so that we can honor our founding principle that “Dance is for Everyone”™.

We need your support to succeed. Help Joy of Motion to build a brighter, more equitable, vibrant future for dance education in DC by taking an online dance class or making a tax-deductible donation today.

Your donations and support will help us to sustain the New Joy of Motion!
