The Moderne Academie of Fine Arts has been fostering the love of dance for over fifty years. When you mention The Moderne Academie in Scotch Plains you're likely to hear a lot of people say, "Oh I went there!" MAFA alumnae are now sending their children for dance instruction at their alma mater.

Here at MAFA, we develop dancers. When building skills, it is necessary to begin with a good foundation. Our high standards and ideals are taught by instructors who not only hold degrees in dance, but also attend regular continuing education workshops with leaders in the field. Our instructors are College Graduate Instructors and members of the Dance Masters Of America: New York City as well as Associated Dance Teachers of New Jersey.

When you join The Moderne Academie, you become part of our family. The instructors' love of children is apparent in every class. We get excited about dance! Personal attention is given to every detail of performance, technique, and individual needs. Our main goal is to help every student achieve their maximum dance ability with minimal strain. We aim our energies on "You can do it!" We offer a wide range of classes and camps for all levels and ages.

We offer a wide range of classes for students 18 months and older including Mommy and Me, Ballet, Tap, Jazz, Acrobatics, Lyrical, Contemporary, Hip Hop, Boys Hip Hop, and Pointe. See our website for more information.


We offer full and half day sessions for children ages 3-7. Camps include themed crafts, stories, movies, snacks and of course lots of dancing. The students will make a costume or a prop to use in a dance. Performances are held at the end of the week. No experience necessary.
