Dear New Haven Ballet Friends and Families,

We look forward to welcoming you to one of our DanceAIR, Shared Ability or Spring Performances taking place over the next few weeks. In addition to celebrating the progress our dedicated students in the school have made, NHB's Company and Apprentice Company will be performing some incredible works: Joplin Suites, choreographed by Tom Gold, Giselle, Act II, staged by Lisa Sanborn after Jean Coralli and Jules Perrot, Ondine, choreographed by Marc Spielberger, and an excerpt from Coppelia, choreographed by Lisa Sanborn. We also have several fundraising initiatives happening this month and thank you for any support you are able to provide!

Wishing you a spring full of joyful dance,

Lisa Sanborn
Artistic Director
