Message from the Artistic Director

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

Though students and faculty are preparing for NHB's upcoming Spring Performances, 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. Further, we are thrilled to welcome additional guest faculty and artists in the upcoming months.

I look forward to sharing an incredible spring dancing together.

My very best wishes,
Lisa Sanborn
Artistic Director
