Build confidence through dance!
The Joy of Dancing has been celebrating dance in the
San Jose community since 1977.
Founded by Miss Joy Sinnott
Director: Nicki Day

We teach ballet, tap, jazz, hip hop, lyrical, contemporary, pointe and Zumba.  We teach dancers from age 2 to adult.  We teach more than dance technique at The Joy of Dancing, we teach the love of dance, discipline, respect and self-confidence.  All instructors started at The Joy of Dancing as children and have grown up to become dance teachers to share their love of dance and passion that they learned as children.  We offer a unique program here that is strongly family oriented, where students, pre-school thru adult, can learn in a positive learning environment, the art of dance. 

The Joy of Dancing has a year end recital held at the end of June at The California Theatre in Down Town San Jose.  This gives the dancers an opportunity so show off what they have been learning all year and experience a professional show environment.

In December we present “The Nutcracker” at a local High School Theater.  All students that audition get a part (ages 7+, must be enrolled in a ballet class).

The studio is an 11 month program, Sept. - June plus a summer session.  We offer classes for beginners who want to advance quickly, Classes for intermediate and advanced dancers who want to improve their technique and perform. And classes for adults who wants to exercise and learn the technique and love of dance.
