The Company 

Members of Huntington Dance Theatre’s Company participate by invitation only and keep up a rigorous class and rehearsal schedule. These students work hard to balance their academic, athletic, and dance schedules throughout the school year.

All company members are required to take three ballet classes per week, including two en pointe, as well as classes to study other dance disciplines such as musical theatre and jazz.

Company members are eligible for lead roles in the Huntington Nutcracker and Spring Concert, as well as the chance to participate in our WV Dance Festival adjudicated piece each spring.
