Joppa Dance Company

Joppa Dance NewburyportJoppa Jazz Dance Company was founded over twenty years ago, originally as an adult troupe, but now consists of children and teens ranging from 4th to 12th grade, (divided in three levels: Joppa Junior, Joppa 2 and Joppa Teen). Auditions are held every June.

Once a member, all dancers must attend ballet class, company class, and rehearsal every week. Joppa members have the opportunity to perform throughout the year, attend master classes, and create their own choreography. 

Instead of competitions, the focus is on the process, technique and artistic expression. Many members continue to dance after they graduate, and have gone on to make their marks in the modern dance world. We are proud of all our gifted and beautiful dancers.

Joppa Dance Company 2013The company continues to be invited to tour with Performing Arts Educators, (PAE).
