The Company of New England Academy of Dance is a pre-professional dance group that provides a performance outlet and a professional experience for the most advanced students of NEAD. The Company fosters excellence in all forms of dance, especially classical ballet, and instills in its dancers enthusiasm and desire to share their passion with the local community.
Members of the company will learn and perform works by professional choreographers, and collaborate with guest professional dancers, musicians, and other artists as well as participate in a wide range of high caliber dance productions/performances, benefits, community outreach programs, student teaching, internships, lecture demonstrations, workshops, and master classes. We believe through sharing of our performances, experiences and continuous desire to develop new audiences, that we can make a difference in others and shape our community.
Company auditions are held each year in September and are open to NEAD students, level 6A and up. There is a company fee of $500 per semester. Members must sign the Company Contract, Commitment Letter and Photo Release form by 9/30.
