New England Vintage Arts Society

Dedicated to researching, preserveing, and sharing dances and related social activities through the exploration of living history in a welcoming and inclusive environment for the enjoyment of the public.

Our top priority is the health and safety of our audiences, artists, and staff. Concerns about Covid-19 have affected to schedule 2021 events. We hope to hold an event in August as a memorial to our late dancemaster, if health guidelines permit. Please join our mailing list or check facebook or this page for updates.



At this time we do not know if we will be able to hold any of the
events in 2021. As the year progresses we will determine if local health guidelines will allow us to schedule events.

Our home is in one of America’s oldest summer resort towns, with enchanting period venues amidst refreshing ocean breezes. Don’t miss this wonderful opportunity to experience a summer holiday as it might have been during the Victorian, Belle Epoque, Ragtime & Jazz ages.
For the last three decades we have put together fun filled vintage activities to transport you to the past in true vintage style! Sadly we will have to wait a year to pack our trunks and warm up our ankles for a trip into history!

Nahant Events in the past have included:

  • Silent Film evening
  • Gatsby by the Sea Jazz Age Dinner & Dance with the Nahant Dance Orchestra
  • Victorian Ball with Spare Parts
  • Formal Afternoon Tea & Seaside Promenade
  • Costume and Dance Classes
  • Optional Monday Outing & Shopping Excursion
