The Spirit of Huntington Art Center

The Spirit of Huntington Art Center is a 501(c)3 that ignites the passion of students of all ages and all abilities for creative expression that transforms lives.

Our Center is built on a foundation of love that fosters problem-solving and free expression that can help nurture students of all ages through educational and pre-vocational training in our structured, safe environment.

One of our most popular programs, ArtABILITY, presents a set of weekly activites including art, clay, music and movement classes. These are a series of classes that introduce students to the lives of famous artists and the challenges they overcame through their art.

north shore dance

At NSD our goal is to create a warm and nurturing environment were dancers and families feel home.  

As all of our teachers at NSD were young dancers once too, we understand the process and feelings associated.  We want each child to enjoy dance as we did and do.  There is nothing more satisfying to train these young ladies and gentleman from babies and marvel at how talented they have become over the years with hard work and dedication put forth. 

While every child learns and progresses differently, we want to foster their growth with their parents help. Lines of communication are always opened and welcomed to discuss progress and give feedback.  

While every child has different wants and needs, we are pleased to offer three programs at NSD; Recreational, Company and competition.
