Winter has arrived. NHB will notify families via email when classes are canceled, as well as post closings on WTNH and NHB's Facebook page, which is linked through NHB's website. NHB's office phone will also contain a recorded message about class closings.
Despite the snowy and icy weather, students will soon be preparing for their Spring Performance. Select classes from Creative Ballet 1 through Level 5, together with enrichment and NHB's Company and Apprentice Company, will perform at the Shubert Theater on Saturday, May 21. All First Steps classes will perform an "in studio" demonstration on the last day of their class -- parents, relatives and friends are invited!
The Spring Term also brings NHB's wonderful outreach programs,
Shared Ability and DanceAIR. And, we are excited to welcome several guest faculty and artists over the next few months.
Stay safe and warm!
