Programs

Massachusetts Dance Academy offers classes for all ages and levels. 

Dance classes begin at 18 months old with Enchanted Be, and for students who are ready to begin gently separating from parents we offer Creative Movement classes.

Our Preschool and Kinderdance curriculum allows children to develop a love for dance with ballet, tap, and pre-jazz studies. Each introductory class sets the foundation for what each progression level is built upon.

From ages 6 through 18 we offer our classics program which offers many styles of dance to students who are just beginning dance or looking to contiunue their studies.

For the dancer who just can't get enough, we have our Intensive Programs. Intensive students compete in regional and national dance competitions.

Teen Classics

Ages 13-19​

This is our classics program designed specifically for teens. The classes are fun for teens, and allow them to learn a variety of different dance forms. The classes are based on the level of the dancers, so whether students are just beginning dance or continuing their studies, we have classes for every teen.

Competition Teams

 

For the students who can't get enough of dance, we offer our competitive dance teams. We believe that dancers can benefit greatly through the competition experience. Dancers have greater performance oppurtunites through dance competitions, and are exposed to a wider dance community.  Dancers are taught the value of teamwork, self-discipine, dedication, confidence, time management, and respect for the art of dance. Auditions are required to be placed at this level. ​
