We moved to Huntington Beach when my daughter was in 3rd grade, and she already knew ballet was her true love! We selected Huntington Academy of Dance for her training because of the emphasis on ballet and having seen several of their productions in past years. She began working with the amazing faculty and training in the Cecchetti Method. I had to look that word up, but my research proved Cecchetti is a ballet training method that provides a solid technical foundation, putting primary emphasis on growing dancers slowly and safely, both to prevent injury and perfect movements. She has been dancing there now for 7 years and her passion and love for the art form has grown exponentially. She is still pursuing her training very seriously with the goal of becoming a professional ballerina. Over the past 3 years, she has been accepted and earned scholarships into several pre-professional summer training programs to further her exposure to more styles of ballet and training, and she has seen success and earned accolades at a variety of prestigious ballet competitions, all of which should help her achieve her goal. The quality of training, the incredible teachers, and the supportive dance community make HAD a fantastic choice for any dancer trying to achieve their dreams.
