New Haven Ballet offers a limited number of financial aid and merit scholarships to qualified enrollees in the Student Division for ages 5-19 years who demonstrate a deep commitment to dance. Students may only be considered for financial aid after being evaluated through a placement class and submitting an application together with all required documents. Completed forms and documents must be returned to NHB by August 1 prior to fall registration for consideration.

Financial aid is a special gift made possible through the generosity of New Haven Ballet donors. Recipients of financial aid and their families are expected to continue this spirit of generosity through volunteer support of the Ballet’s efforts and as ambassadors of the Ballet in the greater community.

For rolling admission during the academic year, contact the NHB office for information regarding financial aid and scholarship applications. All applications and financial information are kept confidential.



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.
