About us.

Women-owned and proud! When two determined dance parents saw how damp clothes and delicate shoes got stuffed together in dance bags, with chemical fresheners disguising the odor, they resolved to find a better way –and JoyThruDance was born. Sarah Joy and Maureen Throumoulos struck up a friendship, and later a business, during their daughters’ dance classes. Discussing the strong smell of ballet feet, the serious investment in dance essentials, and the scramble of dance life led to the concept and design of the JoyThruDance carrying bag/storage unit and reVIVE packs of activated charcoal. With the detailed precision and conscious intention that define the dancer lifestyle, JoyThruDance protects the essentials, the time and the well-being of dancers everywhere.
