Free Q House Performance

Free Q House Performance

New Haven Ballet continues to kick off the holiday season by returning to the Dixwell Community House (“Q House”) to present a free Holiday Dance Concert on Sunday, December 3, at 3:00 p.m.

New Haven Ballet will perform excerpts from Artistic Director Lisa Kim Sanborn’s The Nutcracker, which premiered at the Shubert Theatre New Haven in 2013. Also presented will be excerpts from the ballets Cavaliere Allegro and Vivaldi Concerto.

Located at 197 Dixwell Avenue in the heart of New Haven, the performance will feature beautiful costumes, professional sound and lighting, and the quintessential holiday music by Tchaikovsky. Parking is available. Admission is free. Audience members are encouraged to arrive early to enjoy a holiday afternoon of ballet.

This performance is made possible through the generosity of the City of New Haven Department of Arts, Culture, and Tourism and in partnership with the Dixwell Community House.

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.
