Joyce Lemos comes directly from the vibrant and effervescent city of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. She has studied dance and performance under some of the most prestigious and globally known instructors. Joyce has performed in Brazil in many national productions such as A Chorus Line (Diana) and the Rocky Horror Picture Show (Columbia). Joyce made her international debut as an aerialist and dancer with the famous Ringling Bros. & Barnum and Bailey Circus. Her local credits also include Arabian Nights as a stunt rider and Pirates Adventure as a featured aerialist and soloist. Joyce's artistic and professional vision has allowed her to bring many shows to life as choreographer for many regional productions such as The Producers, RENT, The Jungle Book, and Once Upon A Mattress.
A lot of folks say "Hey Joyce...What do I wear to Tap Class?" Well Tap shoes...duh. But then there's all that other stuff for legs and shoulders and stuff that's important too. And some classes are pretty formal-ish, like Ballet. But then others range from Flashdancing Cats to virtually Xanadu-esque...sans roller skates. We could go on and on, but to make a long story short (too late!), check out this handy graphic.
"Miss Joyce you are a great teacher and I love how you inspire every human being you teach, and I was lucky to be one of those humans!"
"You've done an amazingly beautiful job with this cast..There aren't enough words in English or Portuguese to thank you for all your hard work and thoughtfulness. I am indebted to you."
