New England Dance Theater (NEDT) is a 501c3 performing arts organization located in New Canaan Connecticut. We are the non-profit production arm of the New England Academy of Dance (NEAD), a pre-professional ballet academy.

Our Mission is to create a greater awareness and appreciation
for the Performing Arts through dance.

Our all-volunteer working Board of Directors accomplishes this mission by raising funds for high quality dance productions, community outreach programs, and dancer enrichment activities for NEDT Company and NEAD advanced dancers.

Ticket sales and concessions alone do not cover all the costs of our high quality productions.  NEDT’s success relies on fundraising in our community and volunteerism from our NEAD family. We are fortunate and grateful for their unwavering support in this mission.
