Classes are ON today!

Hello!  Happy Tuesday :) ……we WILL be having ballet classes today, 12/17/19 (even though some schools had a later start time due to the snow).  As always, please drive carefully and if you have any doubt, call the studio and leave a message for Catherine so she is aware.   Thank you!

Classes WILL be held today

Following the NEB tradition of NOT automatically cancelling ballet classes when public school is cancelled, we WILL be holding ballet classes today :) .   The snow will end by 1:00, and roads are already clear enough to get to the studio.  If for anyone reason you feel unsure about travel this afternoon, your child can make up  the class, as arranged by your teacher (Miss Catherine :) )…..

Fall Session Updates!

Hello Dancers!
A few updates regarding our upcoming Fall Session:
  • Fall classes start the week of September 15th (next week).  See you then!
  • The Tuesday Pre-Ballet I class is currently at capacity.  We are starting a wait-list to see if there is sufficient interest to run a second class.  If interested, please call or email ( the studio.
  • Our Wednesday evening Variations Class with Marina Flessas is intended for students attending on a regular basis (i.e., no “walk-ins”)
  • The Monday adult ballet class is now starting at 7:30 pm (instead of 8:00pm)
  • Our holiday break is two weeks this year, please note dates on the schedule page

Thank you!


Fall Registration is Now Open!

Hello Dancers!

The schedule for fall ballet classes is now ready, and the website has been updated to allow for online registration.

It is critically important that to support staffing and classes, you register and provide a 25% non-refundable deposit by August 1st.  Minimum enrollment is necessary to maintain the class schedule that is listed on the website at the moment.  Your deposit confirms your spot in class.

Please head to the Register tab to enroll your student.  After that is completed, please mail a check for the appropriate deposit to: New England Ballet, 5 Eden Rd.  Wayland, MA 01778.  It is important that the deposit arrives in a timely manner (i.e. filling out the on-line form and holding off sending a check will not allow me to confirm your child’s headcount in the class).  If you are new to NEB, make sure you carefully read the payment options by scrolling down through “Policies”, as we are still offering a payment plan (additional fees apply).

As a reminder, even if you are taking the same class(es) as in the last session, please complete a registration form(s) for this session’s classes.  This also ensures that we have your current contact information, and you are added to our current student mailing list.

We are all looking forward to having your happy feet in classes again in the fall!  Enjoy your summer holidays, wherever they may go ….

Thank you,
Mara Shelton

End of Year Demonstration is Today!

At long last, our end of year demonstration is upon us! Start time is 3pm at the Wayland Middle School off Route 27. If you don’t have tickets yet, not to worry. Tickets will be available at the door for $20 GA with discounts for students and seniors.

Unlike many recitals, we call our program an end of the year demonstration. We do not have backdrops, specialized lighting, or costuming that is ordered and paid for by parents every year. Our intent is to create a simple, but special, environment for our students to present examples of their development as dancers, from the littlest to the most advanced. We have our younger classes sit in an area near the audience so they can watch other classes perform, educating them with a picture of ballet training as they advance through class levels.

Happy New Year!

A reminder that our Winter/Spring session of classes begins Monday, January 21, 2019.
