Message from the Artistic Director

Dear New Haven Ballet Friends and Families,

I wish to extend a warm welcome to our new students who are joining NHB this spring. We are excited to have you with us!

The students and faculty are working hard to prepare for NHB's upcoming Spring Performances, but it is not too early to begin thinking about summer. NHB offers classes to students through June and July.  The Spring Term also includes NHB's wonderful outreach programs,  Shared Ability and DanceAIR. And, we are thrilled to welcome additional guest faculty and artists in the upcoming months.

Happy Spring!

Best wishes,

Lisa Sanborn
Artistic Director
