OUR CLASSES

Joy of Dance classes are developed with an understanding of the cognitive, physical, and creative needs of each age group. Classes integrate aspects of several early childhood educational methods such as Montessori, Reggio Emilia, RIE, and what Founder/Director Joy Voelker refers to as “The Mr. Rogers Approach.” The movement material in class draw inspiration from creative movement, ballet, contemporary, jazz, hip-hop, tap, music, improvisation, and composition using all genres of music. This is what we at Joy of Dance call Dance Exploration. All this purposeful learning is delivered in a package of smiles and laughter, surprises and songs. Learning happens when children are exploring and having fun!

ABOUT US

Founder Joy Voelker developed her approach to early childhood dance during her 10+ years as a dance educator. Her knowledge and values form the basis for all the classes. The Joy of Dance faculty bring their own valued experiences to the training they receive about the Joy of Dance methods and approach, making this a unique and dynamic group of dance educators.
