SOUTH ORANGE VILLAGE at The Baird Community Center, Meadowland Park, 5 Mead St. 


We are excited to announce a new location for our Monday ballet and choreography classes! Our dancers will be learning and creating in the dance studio at the gorgeous Baird Community Center in South Orange! This totally renovated historic building, with easy parking, is located in Meadowland Park steps away from the duck pond, South Orange Middle School, NJ Transit station, and Village shops and restaurants. A large recently updated playground is within easy walking distance across an open athletic field for before or after class fun or for siblings as they wait. Ice cream shops, coffee shops and bakery are nearby. 


MAPLEWOOD VILLAGE at The Burgdorff Center  (Thursdays) 

As a not-for-profit we are a part of the local community holding classes in this lovely, old building. Built in 1925 as a church, and later donated to Maplewood as a performing arts venue, Burgdorff is around the corner from the main retail street of Maplewood Village and across the street from the NJ Transit station and Memorial Park. Our older students often walk to classes or enjoy ice cream or snacks after class in the village. Our parents can shop in the village or have a cup of coffee at Able Baker down the hill while their young dancers take class. Families from our neighboring towns love the village and enjoy their time here. 

 Our spring performances of student choreography are held a few steps away at The Woodland (60 Woodland Rd , Maplewood NJ)  

SOUTH ORANGE VILLAGE at St. Andrew's Church, 160 West South Orange Ave.

  (Saturdays &Wednesdays) 

We are happy to announce our South Orange location at St. Andrew's Church on the corner of Ridgewood Rd and South Orange Avenue. This location features EASY free parking in the South Orange train station and SOPAC parking lot right across the street. Our Saturday Classes will be held in the beautiful Choir Room and Wednesdays in the spacious and light Parish Hall. Like our Maplewood location, St. Andrew's is a beautiful, historic building located near the village downtown. Check out several wonderful cafes such as The Order and Jackie & Son, or the new bakery Three Sisters Baking. Several ice cream shops and Starbucks are within an easy walk, as well as numerous restaurants for a post-class lunch or dinner.  After your child's Saturday dance class meet up for playdates at the lovely duck pond or the playground in Cameron Field. 

As a nonprofit we rent spaces in local buildings where arts education is valued.
