Joy of Motion Dance Center is committed to not turning any student away for inability to pay, as well as infusing access and inclusion into all of our youth programming.  We want to work with our families to make long-term, high-level dance education possible for everyone.


All of Joy of Motion’s financial aid is need-based and primarily awarded on a case-by-case basis through income verification, as available funds allow. Students are typically awarded 100%, 75%, or 50%  in tuition assistance per registered session(s), determined by the 2020 HUD Income Limits Documentation System’s household income scales. 

More information about our financial aid program can be found in the FAQs below.
