Joy of Motion is now offering summer camps for students entering Ages 6-14 for brand-new and experienced dancers alike!



We are excited to offer camps in ballet, contemporary, hip hop, jazz, modern, and tap, as well as musical theater performance, technique and repertory, and choreography. Our signature summer program, Performance Dance Camp (PDC), is a two-week immersion into five different dance styles, culminating in a concert.

Each camp is typically one or two weeks long. Performance Dance Camp offers consecutive two-week sessions and students often enroll in more than one session, as the choreography changes each time. Campers can also string together multiple one-week camps.

Hours: camps run from 9 AM to 4 PM daily with optional before-care starting at  7:45 AM and after-care until 6:00 PM. Performance Dance Camp will have a show on the Friday evening following the 2nd week of each session.

Location: H st Studio

Camp dates: Starting June 27th

Joy of Motion’s Summer Camps will be in-person! More information about Joy of Motion’s re-opening safety protocols can be found here. For more information about our wider polices and procedures, please see our Policies Homepage
