Message from the Artistic Director

Dear New Haven Ballet Friends and Families,

The countdown to our Spring Performance has begun! 

Students are working hard to perfect choreography and will perform at the Shubert Theater on May 20 at 1 pm

This spring NHB's outreach programs, Shared Ability and DanceAIR, will also be performing. Shared Ability will perform in NHB's Spring Performance at the Shubert Theater on Saturday, May 20. DanceAIR will perform at the Fair Haven School on May 12 at 6:00 p.m. We are also thrilled that the New Haven Ballet Company will perform in several festivals this spring. 

Another big event on the horizon is the Great Give. NHB relies heavily on fundraising to provide students with professional faculty, wonderful studios, excellent training, beautiful performances, and so much more. A portion of every donation you make to NHB during the Great Give is matched by the Community Foundation for Greater New Haven. We hope you will consider donating. 

I look forward to seeing you at one of our upcoming performances. Happy Spring!

Best wishes,

Lisa Sanborn
Artistic Director 
New Haven Ballet
