Huntington Academy of Dance has been a central fixture in the lives of my girls since age 3.  It is something they absolutely love and have been self motivated to pursue.  When COVID struck, our lives were drastically affected along with the rest of the world.  I can’t say enough about how Miss Kimberly and the entire Staff at Huntington Academy of Dance has handled the rapidly changing situation.  Safety was clearly their primary concern.  But that hard work and dedication has also provided the students with a sense of connection, normalcy, optimism, and joy.We had Zoom classes within three days which greatly helped with the early periods of quarantine.  Later, safety protocols, allowed for split classes where a limited number of kids could attend in person while the others continued on Zoom.  Careful rotation allowed for fairness to all.We feel blessed to have been a part of HAD though these times of uncertainty.  They have made us feel safe and cared for while allowing our girls to stay connected with their friends, focused on their craft, and it has provided positivity above all.We are truly thankful for the wonderful team at HAD.
