Message from the Artistic Director

I wish to extend a warm welcome to new students who have joined NHB this semester. We are so happy to have you with us!

NHB is buzzing about its upcoming production of  Beauty and the Beast  at the historic Shubert Theater  in downtown New Haven. We can hardly wait to perform for you  on May 19! The Spring also includes NHB's wonderful outreach programs,  Shared Ability  and DanceAIR , both of which are performing in May . Further, we are pleased to welcome new and seasoned guest faculty and artists, in addition to incredible opportunities for NHB students in the upcoming months. Finally, it is not too early to begin thinking about summer. Registration is open and classes in Branford and New Haven are beginning to fill. NHB is a wonderful place to share fun times and make new friends over the summer while building ballet skills.  

I look forward to sharing an incredible time dancing and performing together this Spring!

My very best wishes,
Lisa Sanborn
Artistic Director
