Joe's Movement Emporium
rare. gritty. brilliant.



I just wanted to thank you, once again, for the years of generosity Joe's Movement Emporium has shown towards my family.

I have two talented and creative children who love to experience the warm and encouraging atmosphere found at Joe's. Since they were in elementary school, your scholarships have allowed my children to attend and take advantage of the artistic excellence provided by your instructors and the fun that comes with being creative with lots of other talented children their age. As a single mother struggling through various financial hardships, Joe's provided a safe and affordable haven for my two daughters to grow and be nurtured.

They are now in middle and high school, pursuing courses in creative and performing arts. My oldest recently won a gold medal in the Prince George's County NAACP chapter's ACT-SO competition in the contemporary vocal category. She will compete with other vocalists from across the country in Baltimore this July. She attends Suitland High School's Center for the Visual and Performing Arts, located in Forestville, Maryland. My youngest daughter recently placed 2nd in the Prince George's County Film Festival in the middle school category of "Under a Minute Challenge". She attends Benjamin D. Foulois Creative Arts Academy in Morningside, Maryland.

These successes would not have been possible without the confidence cultivated in them during their formative years at Joe's Movement Emporium. I would not have been able to send them without your kindness and generosity.

Thank you, again, for all that you do for children and families in the Washington, DC metropolitan area.

We so appreciate the care you and Club Joe's staff provide. I'm impressed that Brodie has learned to play chess, does ballet and other forms of dance and creates cool art. I love that when I pick him up in the evening, he typically has a smile on his face and walks out with enthusiastic "good-byes" and "see ya later" from those around him.

I also wanted to take a moment to thank you for making sure our boy was safe, happy and enriched for all of these years. You run a great program and our family has been happy beneficiaries of it! We hope to keep in touch over the coming years and remain active supporters of Joes.
