To promote excellence and integrity in the arts.


Eoj ballet has been adopted as the name of expressions of joy's dance academy reflecting our commitment to classical forms with ballet as the central component. Eoj dance academy has steadily upgraded the technical quality of the instruction with all students now mastering at least 85% proficiency on the syllabus at their level of training in 2013. Our curriculum decisions are based primarily on university requirements as our goal is to train gifted students for professional careers in dance and ministry. Even students who do not continue in dance will have a sophisticated appreciation of the art preparing them to support the arts in their communities. The primary focus of the year was on the premier of a ballet based on the lion, the witch and the wardrobe by c. S lewis. All of the ballet and other dance classes focused on the staging of this original ballet. Expressions of joy was selected to receive an arts access grant from the broward center for the performing arts which allowed us to meet the increased production costs of a unionized professional theater. The production was a huge marketing success with 650 seats selling out three weeks in advance of the premier. It was also a huge artistic success taking full advantage of the technical capabilities of the venue and its staff. Most importantly, the message of expressions of joy was effectively delivered to a new audience segment previously unreached by expressions of joy. We left the broward arts community with a desire for a repeat, perhaps annual, performance of this emerging holiday classic.

eoj productions focused of increasing the stature of christmas near the beach, our annual holiday outreach. For christmas 2013, the event drew 6,000 aided by support from local radio stations both christian and secular. Choirs, bands and performers from dozens of local churches as well as recording artists and our own eoj company brought the christmas story to the public square in a powerful and engaging way. Eoj productions also provided performers for several local churches and community organizations supporting their christmas events with high-quality choreography and performances. This allowed us to touch another 3,000 for the 2013 christmas season.

eoj outreach continued to take our training out into the community through satellite classes offered through the city of hollywood at the hollywood arts park. Both dance and fitness classes were offered to children and adults with significant assistance from the city staff. At the main studio, eoj continued to offer training support for existing community dance troupes focus on both technique and choreography. Eoj increased its collaboration with local dance studios and academic programs providing senior students for key roles in classical ballet productions and auditioning their students for roles in eoj productions.
