Dance is an expression of the soul. It conveys joy and sadness, love and hate, anger and compassion. Every dance is a unique act of personal or collective expression.
If you enjoy aesthetic movement and are open to new experiences, we'd love to hear from you. Our instructors are accomplished dancers from a variety of personal and professional backgrounds.
Mid-Atlantic Ballet offers high-quality ballet training for all ages and different levels, from beginner to advanced. With something for everyone, we look forward to welcoming you here!
Downtown Newark's Longest Running Nutcracker!
Mid-Atlantic Ballet is pleased to present the holiday classic, The Nutcracker. Delighting our hometown audience for years, Mid-Atlantic Ballet's performance of The Nutcracker is one of the most beloved performances of the year.
Your family will be delighted with the show's holiday party, dancing dolls, and the gift of a Nutcracker to a little girl named Clara. Witness a daring battle between mice and soldiers, whirling snowflakes, and a fantastical journey to the Lands of the Sweets, where Clara is honored by the Sugar Plum Fairy with a celebration of dances.
