Joy of Motion Dance Center’s experienced dance instructors lead solo and paired participants through a variety of styles in fun group dance classes. Across six sessions of Intro to Latin Ballroom, students learn basic patterns and variations of the cha-cha, rumba, and samba, and Intro to Club Latin helps limbs master the moves of bachata, cumbia and merengue while balancing on a disco ball. All students, whether they came alone or with a companion, switch partners frequently during each class.

Winner of the Mayor’s Art Award for Excellence in Service to the Arts and Outstanding Contribution to Arts Education, Joy of Motion Dance Center supports the notion that dance is for everyone, encouraging people of all ages, skill levels, and numbers of left feet to partake.

About 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.
