Beginning Ballet

Beginning Ballet level classes at Huntington Dance Theatre are designed for students just beginning school. Classes have no prerequisite and introduce students to the elements of dance, including a variety of body and movement skills, guiding students to repeat short dance phrases from memory, responding to differences in tempo and rhythm, and being attentive to dance activities and cues.   

  • Available classes include ballet, a jazz/tap combo, and a hip hop/acro combo and meet on Tuesdays and Saturdays.
  • Students will either wear light purple leotards and fleshtone tights and ballet slippers or white tops and black leggings/dance shorts. 
  • Two performance opportunities: The Huntington Nutcracker and the Spring Recital.
