For over 65 years, we have shared our love of dance with our students and have had the pleasure of teaching our students many different styles of traditional dance. Founded in 1950 by Dr. Ed Joyce, the studios have been operated by Ed and Gerrie Joyce for the past 60 years. This husband and wife dance team have been invited by every national dance organization to teach both teachers and advanced students in every major city in the USA. They still direct studio operations and teach at the studios.
Joyce Dance Studios is family owned and each of our teachers have years of experience cultivating and growing each students dance skills. A second generation of the family, Tom Joyce and Ronnie Joyce Stackhouse, serve as fulltime faculty and studio managers. Our main dance studios are located in Amesbury, MA and Dover, NH as well as remote studios in Ipswich, MA and Eliott, ME. We welcome students of all ages, 3 and older.
