Who We Are

Voted Best Dance Clases for Kids by CBS, DC 2014, Joy of Motion Dance Center (JOMDC) offers the widest variety of recreational and pre-professional technique classes for youth in the DMV. Classes begin in our KidMotion Program for dancers 2 - 5 and are specifically designed for each age. Styles offered progress as your child develops and begins with Toddlers in Motion, Kid Modern, Creative Movement, and Dance Basics. Students will develop fine motor skills, learn spatial awareness, improve balance, and enjoy creative group play. At 5 years old, dancers progress to style specific classes in Jazz/Tap Combo and Pre-Ballet, where they will begin to learn dance technique, body alignment, and basic footwork.

1st - 12th grade dancers can select from over 100 youth classes in a variety of styles and levels in ballet, belly dance, breakdancing, flamenco, jazz, hip hop, tap, modern and more! Class enrollment is based on your child's current school grade and all new dancers will begin in level 1 classes in the style of their choice. Dancers who love to perform may elect to audition for one of our performing Youth Dance Companies, H.Y.P.E. Program and the awarding winning Youth Dance Ensemble.

Fall Youth Enrollment classes meet once per week, for 13 weeks, from September 14 - December 20. No classes the week of November 23 - 29. Fall tuition is $282 for new JOMDC students and $247 for returning JOMDC students. Payment plans are available and must be arranged with a Studio Manager.
