Dance Programs at The Hartt Community Division

Come experience the joy of movement.


Fall 2013 dance classes begin Wednesday, September 4.

It feels great! Hartt Community Division (HCD) Dance Department classes are taught in beautiful, spacious studios. Our teachers are experienced, dedicated, and can truly impart the deep satisfactions of studying dance. HCD offers a wide range of classes for  all levels, interests and ages, beginning at one year old. Studios are located in Hartford and Simsbury.

For young children, we offer a Toddler and Pre-K program and a Children's Program, including ballet and tap classes. Weekly classes for Youth ages 8-10 years are available in the Open Program. Interested students may also move to twice weekly classes in the Foundation Program in ballet and jazz. (This also prepares dancers for HCD’s Pre-Professional Program.)

The Pre-Professional Program is designed for students at more advanced levels of technique, artistry and etiquette. Serious pre-professional dancers can prepare themselves for further collegiate studies and/or a career and life in dance.

Adults will find weekly classes in many styles in our Adult Dance Program--including ballet, tap, jazz, hip hop, preparacion fisica and contemporary modern. In fact, we offer walk-ins for all Adult Dance classes--and you can try a class for free!
