Island Moving Company is pleased to announce the acquisition of the Newport Academy of Ballet, scheduled for the end of this month. Affiliated with IMC for the past 35 years, the Newport Academy of Ballet employs IMC’s professional dancers as its instructors, shares its building and studios, and is the heart and soul of Island Moving Company’s educational mission.
This new collaboration won’t affect any of the day to day operations of the school nor of the company, but the combining of the two will help strengthen the sustainability of both for many years to come. We are very excited to begin our 35th year with this thrilling collaboration.

Guess we’ll be getting those tickets up on sale earlier this year!
Today, Clint Clemens and his collaborator Bill MacGowan, hung seven additional images of our dancers in our building at 3 Charles Street, off Washington Square. Our entrance is now graced by photos of Katie Moorhead and of Clint’s granddaughter Emmy, while the lobby is hung with stunning pictures of Brooke DiFrancesco, Tara Gragg, Lauren Difede, GlenLewis and Shane Farrell. Our friends at the Washington Square Cafe purchased an image featuring Brooke DiFrancesco which now hangs in the entrance. It’s very exciting and is only the beginning — Clint will be hanging large photos in the studio foyer and in the studios themselves over the holiday break. Come take a look!
