About Me

Born in Copenhagen. Raised in Toronto.
Professional freelance dancer trained in ballet but specializing in showgirl styles.

Instagram: @beatitudinem
Twitter: @joykidston

I perform with and choreograph for the Diamond Dancers in Toronto. Previously, I have worked with the Bollywood and Beyond Dance Team (Toronto), Ballet Ouest de Montréal, Cadence Progressive Contemporary Ballet (Toronto) and the Canadian Ballet Theatre (Toronto).

I am currently not able to do any dance shoots as I unfortunately sustained a concussion a couple years back but I am back training again and I hope to be at my full range of dance capabilities again sooner rather than later!
I am open to a range of themes and creative works and I am comfortable working with other people (animals too) and outdoors.

"Joy is one of the most talented models I have worked with. Her posing and dance moves are incredible. She is excellent at finding a character (esp in bodypaint) and using subtle expressions and body movements to convey it. She works extremely hard to get each shot and seems tireless!! Could not recommend more!!" Read less
