The Imagine-It Experience

For Ages 5 to 9

   Ballet

Ballet is the foundation from which all forms of dance originate. Each Imagine-It ballet class consists entirely of technique and is partitioned into barre work, port de bras, center barre, adagio, and allegro. Children spend a portion of each class at the barre in order to acquire the strength, balance, and placement necessary to execute center work correctly.

   Jazz

In partnership with the Imagine-It curriculum you can add a Jazz element! Jazz can be expressed in many forms from all eras, it originated from the African dance styles. Its emphasis is on rhythm and technique. Jazz is an exciting and ever evolving dance form full of rhythm, syncopation, passion and life. Steeped in the rhythm of jazz music, an inspiring art form, jazz dance brings energy to all those who dance it. Classes explore body isolations of the head, shoulders, ribcage, feet and arms and encourage individual expression and the development of personal style. Ever evolving, jazz dance is taught with the music of today together with the classical jazz of yesterday and encompases stretch, strength and control as well as leaps, turns and jumps.

   Tap

In partnership with the Imagine-It curriculum you can add a Tap element! Tap is rooted in African American history and has its own techniques and steps to learn. Its an exciting rhythmic dance and is not only enjoyable to watch but to hear as well.Tap uses a wide variety of footwork and skills to produce rhythm and sound. The mind and body connection happens while students simultaneously learn the basics of tap and more intricate footwork. Tap teaches concentration through counting and listening. This study allows ones ability to move quickly and easily while mastering steps such as shuffles, flaps, and spanks. Tap offers a variety of styles while using different patterns, rhythms, and beats.

   Lyrical Jazz

Lyrical is a contemporary dance form that has its roots in Jazz. The movement vocabulary and range of motion used is endless and creative and draws on each student's personal expression. Classes may include improvisation and creative exercises. This hour focuses on teaching dancers about creative expression. Our teachers achieve this by instructing students to tell the story of a piece of music through their movements. NEDA recommends this class be taken in conjunction with a Ballet and Jazz class.

   Hip Hip

Hip Hop features many forms and challenges dancers to find their own groove! Hip Hop has many individualized styles and new moves are continuously being invented by creative and innovative visionaries who mix the Old School Styles with current trends. Hip hop is a high energy, engaging class using dance and fitness. This class incorporates skills from jazz funk, breakdancing, and street dance. This involves level changes including freezes, isolations, and across the floor movements. The popularity of hip hop has evolved over the years and has continued to grow, encouraging dancers of all genres to become involved.

   Acrobatics

Acro Dance is a style of dance that combines dance technique with precise acrobatic elements. Properly achieved acrobatic skills can be added to a multitude of dance genres. Acro dance is meant to be softer than gymnastics with the emphasis on lengthening, control and balance. New England Dance Academy is a Country leader in acrobatics! We have students who have gone on to professional acrobatic careers and Division 1 college scholarships.

   Musical Theater

Musical Theatre will focus on learning proper dance technique while exploring the various dance styles used in Broadway shows. Emphasis will also be placed on learning performance skills such as connecting with the audience and telling a story through dance and facial expressions.

developed as part of the hip hop 
culture.  This style to hip hop music, incorporates intricate body
movements, strong acrobatic moves, coordination,style, spontaneity, and fashion. 

Tumbling Classes

dance classes for ages 2 to 5

"Both of my daughters danced at NEDA and their experience was more than we ever hoped for. The teachers, in addition to be caring, kind, friendly, upbeat and fun; take the time to thoughtfully plan their classes, develop progressions based on each student's individual ability level and provide a safe and supportive environment. Every dancer is included, every dancer is important. Students may enjoy dance on a recreational level or push themselves to dance at more advanced College and or professional levels. The friendships my daughters have formed at the school have become their lifelong best friends and their teachers became second parents, providing life lessons that transfer easily, from dance to school to their professional careers today. If I had to do it over again, I would in a heartbeat. Best decision I ever made!!"

"I know you are very aware of how awesome the NEDA family is, but I felt like this needed to be highlighted. This week has been a very tough week for Izzy not only in regards to her health, but emotionally as well.The NEDA dance moms have been simply amazing and I am very lucky to call them my friends and adopted family. They have checked on us each day asking how we all are doing and if we needed anything. On Friday a mom dropped off a gift bag of arts and crafts for the kids as well as notes and cards from Izzy's teammates. The out pouring of love didn't stop at the parents and kids, each one of Izzy's teachers reached out to me through email, IG or Facebook to check in on Izzy and see how she was doing. With us being transplants to MA and having no family in the area I'm so thankful for the NEDA family. Not all heroes wear capes, some wear a fanny pack full of on fire red lipstick, bobby-pins and hairspray!"
