New Haven Ballet’s fundraiser, the Annual Appeal, has begun. Your tax deductible donation in any amount helps us continue to offer our amazing programs.
New Haven Ballet is interested in sharing ballet with the broadest possible audience. We invite the community to learn and engage in dance through our community programs. Despite the challenges we face during the pandemic, New Haven Ballet is working harder than ever to adapt and offer our incredible teachers, staff, ZOOM and studio classes, and performances through our community programming.
Shared Ability offers dance workshops to differently abled artists. Dance is used as a tool to build social and cognitive abilities. Participating artists, including those with Autism Spectrum Disorder, Down Syndrome, cerebral palsy, and other challenges, dance, meet, interact, and share their unique experiences with one another in a safe and supportive environment.
Recreational classes are offered seven days a week on a drop-in basis to students 12+ years — for beginners through advanced level dancers — in our Open Division.
DanceAIR offers dance classes, performances, and scholarships to children who would not otherwise have access or the opportunity to study ballet. We partner with New Haven Public Schools to offer year round training and support for those with financial need and a strong interest in ballet.
Thank you for your generosity and participating in New Haven Ballet’s Annual Appeal.

We look forward to seeing you at the show!
