New England Academy of Dance is dedicated to providing the finest dance education to the aspiring professional as well as the student who wishes to dance for pure physical enjoyment. Our outstanding instructors provide careful training based on the Cecchetti and Vaganova methods, which build strength, flexibility and grace in the dancer. Our program emphasizes proper technical and physical development while instilling a love and appreciation for the art form of dance. We offer a broad range of classes for all ages, including ballet, modern, jazz, tap, hip hop, yoga, pilates, zumba and adult ballet.
We provide our dancers with various performance opportunities, including our annual Nutcracker, a full length classical ballet, a year end performance as well as pieces choreographed by guest artists.
In our centrally located New Canaan facility, we have 3 beautiful studios, a comfortable waiting room for parents and a changing room for dancers. Our new Darien studio is full of up to date amenities and near shops and restaurants.
