Message from the Artistic Director

Happy New Year!

I hope everyone enjoyed a warm and wonderful holiday. We have many exciting things planned this spring and look forward to welcoming students back into the studios.

I wish to extend a heartfelt thank you to everyone who contributed to our beautiful  Nutcracker performances this year. Every year gets better and this year was no exception. The shows were spectacular!

At NHB, we are grateful for the amazing things we experienced in 2016 and eagerly anticipate what 2017 may bring.
My very best wishes,
Lisa Sanborn
Artistic Director
