Message from the Artistic Director

We did it! Thanks to each of you who donated, NHB raised over $10,000 and as a result will receive $5,000 from the Jedziniak-Mellitz Family and The L6 Foundation.

If you missed out on donating, it is never too late! Only through your support are we able to provide the high quality programming and performances that have become NHB's trademark. If you have not yet done so, please consider making a donation, of any amount, to help us continue to give our dancers and audiences the best ballet has to offer.

With thanks,
Lisa Sanborn
Artistic Director
