HSA Dance submerges students in Harlem’s rich history of dancing superstars celebrating ballet, contemporary, jazz, tap, Hip-Hop and African.
From Josephine Baker to Billy “Bonjangles” Robinson, Harlem has been the home to many amazing dancers and these artists are highlighted throughout our class curricula. We offer pre-professional level classes whether students are serious about training or wishing to enrich their lives and supplement their arts education. With a strong philosophy rooted in sequential learning, HSA is proudly one of five certified schools in the world offering the American Ballet Theatre (ABT) National Training Curriculum.
HSA Dance provides classes regardless of skill level or prior training as well as advanced classes requiring audition or assessment. Students age 8 and up must be assessed for placement prior to enrollment into a ballet or contemporary class. All students are invited to perform in HSA’s annual end-of-year dance concert event. The program is developing dance ensembles by audition of invitation only.
In Fall of 2021, families will be required to purchase HSA branded leotards, tee shirts and joggers for classes that require them. This year, families are given recommended vendors for the purchase.
