At HAD, we have a ballet curriculum, the Cecchetti Method, that safely trains a dancer from the age of 3 through a professional level. Our method is tried and true for the last 40 years we have produced dancers of the highest caliber that have gone on to pursure professional ballet careers with top ballet companies: American Ballet Theater, New York City Ballet, Miami City Ballet to name a few, as well as dancers who have received scholarships to university dance departments. Every year our students are evaluated by national ballet examiners who travel all over the United States and our students consistently receive high marks. Our teachers are certified to teach this method and posses high level of technical skill not only in dance but in teaching dance. Our method consists of building blocks that train a complete dancer who is well rounded in all movements of ballet, turns and leaps are only a small portion what makes a well trained dancer. With each level, new movements are introdced so the students learn each step in a successive way, mastering each movement and skill before going on to more advanced steps. You can see by our highest level students that we produce dancers of the highest calber who are gorgeous each in their own way.  

Huntington Academy is proud to be the home of Ballet Etudes, a youth ballet company dedicated to providing a pre-professional performing experience to our dancers and dedicated to bringing quality dance performances to the community. 

Huntington Academy also works in partnership with the City of Huntington Beach, Parks & Recreation Department, to offer affordable ballet training to the residents of Huntington Beach and surrounding communities through our DANCE HB! program.
