The Tour of Joy is experimenting
with NEW partnerships!

The tour has been going for over 2 years. After crossing the country 2.5 times, traveling to collaborate with individuals, we decided to stop for awhile and invest in different communities. Firs stop was Rockport, TX where we offered Improv Dance, Theatrical Improv, and Joyful Yoga – both private coaching and group classes for folks between the ages of 5-85. After five months, the tour came to Miami, AZ to invest time and projects. This town is special due to it’s history, and demographic of mining families, veterans, and the proximity and relationship with nearby Native American Reservations. Can Joy First collaborate with the Miami Arts organizations here, the Town itself, and the local companies to create a “Joy Activated Town?”

What is a Joyful Moment?

Joyful moments are pop-up moments of surprise, delight, play, fun, and healing using scientific and tried and true ways to bring Joy. From senior care staff, to random people, the purpose is to spread joy far and wide!

And we have already started! While on the road over the last year, many pop-up moments happened, with noses and other connectors in hand, we have spread joy even before we started this campaign. If that was a test, it was successful!

Why bring more joy into the workplace?

Higher Productivity
Higher Profits
More Cohesion between employees
Relational Development
More retention, less turnover, more loyalty
