    On September 15th, 2018 dancers, parents and community members of ALL AGES came to our to celebrate the OPENING of Joy in Motion's NEW HOME. We held our Deploy Joy Dance Party & Silent Auction which was a smashing success. We transformed the space (once again) to create a magical party atmosphere.

    Our Lobby featured a photo booth and the Lounge was open for relaxing and visiting with friends. Studio 1 became our Dining Room with amazing food & drinks. Studio 2 became our Silent Auction Room which featured 27 amazing packages as well as our Signature Cocktail...the Jim-o-nade! Last, but certainly not least, Studio 3 became our Glow in the Dark Dance Room which was enjoyed by kids and adults alike. We also had an amazing face painter in our large side hallway which used glow in the dark make-up!

    The space was absolutely perfect for our approximately 170 guests and was filled with so much love and support. Seeing people enjoying themselves and enlivening our new home made us extremely happy and proud! We raised over $15,000 from the event which includes a generous donation of $5,000 that evening...WOOHOO!!! We wan't thank our friends, family and the community more for believing in us, our dream, and our organization!


    We'd like to thank our in-kind donors which helped make our evening the success that it was. With their generosity, we were able to put together some of the most wonderful packages and offer great beverages and prizes for our drawings!



    With full hearts overflowing from the love and support from the community for our brand of supportive, inclusive and FUN dance classes and events, we've taken the Old Moraga Post Office and build it into 3 dance studios with a supporting lobby, office, lounges, dressing rooms, etc. We are more that proud of what of what we've created...space for dancers to thrive, parents and care-givers to relax and feel welcome, and a pretty rockin' party space, we've learned! 

    Read Lamorinda Weekly's profile of our construction project HERE.

    Our Deploy Joy Party bumped us over halfway to of our GOAL of raising $150,000 to help with construction costs.  Our goal is less than half of the cost. 

    All funds go directly toward helping pay off a loan we obtained to create our new home. We now have a solid base to continue to bring dance into the Lamorinda community and beyond. A lot of the money we spent on this project went back into the community as our general contractor, broker, plumber and many others were from right here in Moraga, with many more including our bank, architect and engineers based out of Walnut Creek.
