Joppa Dance Company

Joppa Dance Company was founded over twenty years ago, originally as an adult troupe, but now consists of children and teens ranging from 4th to 12th grade, (divided in three levels: Joppa Jr., Joppa II and Joppa Teen). Auditions are held every June.

Joppa Dance Company 2013Once a member, all dancers must attend ballet class, company class, and rehearsal every week. Joppa members have the opportunity to perform throughout the year, attend master classes, and create their own choreography. 

Instead of competitions, the focus is on the process, technique and artistic expression. Many members continue to dance after they graduate, some majoring in the art form.


Joppa's 2014 and 2016 trips to perform in Scotland, Spain and New York were a huge success. The company continues to be invited to tour with Performing Arts Educators, (PAE).
