SPRING PERFORMANCE

SCHOOL REHEARSAL SCHEDULE

New Haven Ballet will be producing its 2021 Spring Performance virtually. The performance will be professionally filmed, with lighting, sound and costumes, in our studios at 70 Audubon Street, New Haven. The video will feature students from New Haven Ballet and be available via YouTube at no charge for families to cherish and share.

Composer, Max Holman, has been engaged to compose a new Children’s Ballet for New Haven Ballet on piano. New Haven Ballet is delighted to invite Studio Class students in Creative Ballet 1 through Level 4 to participate.

The purpose of the Spring Performance is to celebrate the accomplishments of the dancers. As you know, our dancers last performed in December 2019’s Nutcracker, which makes this an especially poignant opportunity.

Filming of the Children’s Division will occur in Danspace at 70 Audubon Street, New Haven, on Sunday, May 23, with Tech/Dress rehearsal scheduled for Sunday, May 16.

Filming of Level 5-8 Students in New Haven Ballet Company will occur in Danspace on Saturday, May 22, with Tech/Dress rehearsal scheduled for Saturday, May 15.

OUR MISSION

To provide the greater New Haven Community with exceptional classical ballet training, performances, and outreach programs, that nurture appreciation of ballet and foster the joy of dance.

On October 31, 2020, NHB’s Board of Directors adopted the following Diversity and Inclusion Statement:

New Haven Ballet celebrates those who aspire to excellence in classical ballet. A culture of creativity is the core of our work and diversity promotes innovation. The arts can provide powerful life-changing experiences that prepare students and impact audiences to lead more successful, meaningful and culturally rich lives. The arts can also prove to be an important platform for social change. At New Haven Ballet we are passionate about creating an inclusive dance environment and performances that promote and value diversity and inclusion. We will continue to strive to increase diversity in age, gender identity, race, sexual orientation, physical or mental ability, ethnicity, and perspective, which will improve and strengthen our work.
