Moderne Academie of Fine Arts

"We Develop Dancers"

The Moderne Academie of Fine Arts has been fostering the love of dance for over forty 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 members of professional organizations such as 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. See our course descriptions or download a schedule.
