Joy of Motion Dance Center truly stresses the joy in dance with its popular and energetic adult classes. I enjoyed Isla Bush’s ballet technique class as well as her introduction to pointe classes – specifically for adults! Dance friends (including teachers) have recommended modern, jazz and tap classes as well. I’ve attended only the Friendship Heights location (a little cramped but convenient to the Metro) but Joy of Motion has two additional locations to hold classes in wide variety of dance genres.
