Joy of Motion's skilled instructors have taught and performed all over the world, often as dancers. Your teacher will help you stretch to your physical and artistic limits in appreciating and performing the style of dance you choose.
Reap the benefits of sticking with one genre and one instructor for the full six weeks. Each session builds on the week before, and by the end of the six weeks, you'll walk away with new dance knowledge that may catapult you into dance superstardom alongside Fred Astaire, Jennifer Lopez, and Betsy Ross.
Intro to Dance sessions are held at all four of Joy of Motion Dance Center's DC-area locations: Atlas, Bethesda, Dupont Circle, and Friendship Heights. Make sure you check the location, dates, and weekly class times available for each genre before you sign up.
Snag this Groupon and the possibilities are endless: learn to cat walk in the jazz series, master your pirouette in ballet, or convince a friend to take the hip-hop class with you and join the 2010 production of Fiddler on the Roof: This Time It's For Real.

Joy of Motion Dance Center
Since 1976 Joy of Motion Dance Center, a nonprofit arts organization, has strapped on its ballet flats to kick down the doors that traditionally bar people from learning dance. Since then, it’s won two Mayor’s Arts Awards, one for Excellence in Service to the Arts, and the other for Outstanding Contribution to Arts Education. In 10 studio spaces across three different locations, instructors teach adult and youth programs, and lead an outreach initiative that gives disadvantaged kids the chance to learn dance with free classes or merit-based scholarships. Additionally, the center holds performances and showcases where students and patrons get a taste of professional performance without having to become zombies.
