The Newport Academy of Ballet (NAB) has been providing dance education of the highest quality to children and adults from all over Rhode Island for forty two years. NAB offers classes for all ages and skill levels in ballet, pointe, contemporary, hip hop, jazz, salsa and tap. Nab trains both professional dancers, and students who dance for exercise and the pure love of movement.
The expert faculty at the school interact in a kind and loving way with all students while imparting the courage, strength and discipline it takes to become a dancer. The faculty understands that dance can benefit any student no matter what they choose to do with their experience. The school is committed to giving each student the best dance experience possible. NAB hosts aproxamately forty-two (42) classes per week in our studios, and there are many opportunities to gain performance experience for those who are interested, including a non-mandatory end of year performance.
The academy was purchased by IMC in 2017 as part of the strategic plan to develop a permanent home for the company. Students from NAB have the opportunity to audition for children’s roles in IMC’s professional Family Series Productions of A Newport Nutcracker at Rosecliff, Alice in Wonderland, Mother Goose and Second Star to the Right, A Tale of Hook and Pan.
