Joe’s Dance Company
Made possible by:
Joe’s Dance Company is an audition-based, youth dance ensemble that learns and performs dances from cultures from around the world. Traditional movements are fused with hip hop, modern, African, step, Salsa and Afro Peruvian dance for a culturally rich and dynamic dance education experience for ages 8 - 14.
Founded in 2014 by Jessica Quiroz, Joe’s Dance Company was created in response to the desire of the community’s young people to learn, develop and perform dance traditions from around the world.
Joe’s Dance Company participants must be willing to commit to weekly rehearsals Mondays & Tuesdays from 6 – 8pm. Participants perform throughout the year at various festivals and fundraisers throughout the Gateway Arts District and beyond. Joe's Dance Company follows the Prince George's County school schedule and costs $20 per week per child to participate. This fee covers four hours of instruction from professional movement educators, guest artists, costumes, performance opportunities, and some field trip expenses.
