NHB in the Community
DanceAIR students perform

NHB's  DanceAIR  program performed on May 25 at the ECA Aces Performing Arts Hall. NHB students, including a former DanceAIR winner, performed a spirited contemporary dance and NHB's Company performed excerpts from Paquita.  Eight New Haven Public School children were awarded DanceAIR scholarships which  will allow them to continue their training at NHB and enjoy performance opportunities, including  The Nutcracker  at the Shubert Theater. A special thank you to Dancers' World, as well as the families, principals, teachers and administrators from Fair Haven School, Christopher Columbus Family Academy, John S. Martinez School, East Rock Community and Cultural Studies Magnet School, Lincoln-Basset School, and Quinnipiac Stem School for supporting and making this program possible.

Under the direction of Kerry Kincy and
Brad Roth , NHB's  Shared Ability program culminated in a heartfelt performance on May 19 at the Shubert Theater. The students were joyful in their dancing and we would like to extend a special thank you to the families and students who dedicated their energy, to the City of New Haven Cultural Vitality Program and to the Theresa Foundation for sponsoring Shared Ability.
