Dear New Haven Ballet Friends and Families, 

Fall will soon be upon us. To our new students,  Welcome. To our returning students,  Welcome back. An exciting year is ahead of us all!
I invite you to share the magic of NHB by inviting someone you know to a free trial class in September! This offer is open to any new student through the month of September. 
If it's fall, it must be  Nutcracker time. This year, we'll once again be performing our traditional holiday classic at the Shubert Theater on December 15 and 16, with a student matinee held on December 14.  Auditions will be held on September 22-23. Whether you are cast as a Mouse or Snowflake, a Party Child or in the Spanish Hot Chocolate Corps, dancing in  The Nutcracker is an experience you will treasure for a lifetime.
So start stretching and get ready to jump into a fall of fun and new challenges with New Haven Ballet.  Registration is open. We look forward to seeing you in class.

Yours sincerely,

Lisa Sanborn
Artistic Director
New Haven Ballet
