Without hesitation, I can say Joy if Motion is truly a phenomenal dance school. The professionalism, passion, and skill of the instructors is unmatched. Instructors have a perfect balance of challenging, supporting, and engaging the students so the dancers are not only learning and perfecting their craft, but having fun at the same time.The “whole child” approach of Joy of Motion, mixed with the talented instructors, makes this dance studio incredibly unique in the Washington, DC area.”
