Dance Fundamentals

Dance Fundamental level classes at Huntington Dance Theatre are designed for students in the primary grades. Classes have no prerequisite and guide students in learning the elements of dance, including a variety of body and movement skills, recognizing elements of space and sequencing, responding to differences in tempo and rhythm, and dancing with concentration and focus.   

  • Available classes include two weekly ballet classes, a jazz/tap combo class, and a hip hop/acro combo class and meet on Tuesday and Thursday evenings.
  • Students will either wear light green 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.
