Post Thanksgiving: 1-Week Remote

Post Thanksgiving: 1-Week Remote

November 13, 2020

There has been a surge in COVID cases in Connecticut. If a student or anyone with whom a student has had contact is not feeling well we ask that you stay home and consult your physician. In an effort to ensure the health and safety of the New Haven Ballet community, the COVID Task Force has recommended that NHB suspend studio classes for one week following the Thanksgiving Holiday. 

Additionally, the COVID Task Force has recommended protocols for those who are traveling or hosting guests over Thanksgiving. Click here for the Thanksgiving Holiday Protocols. Please review them carefully and let me know if you have any questions.

NHB’s Thanksgiving break is Wednesday, November 25 through Sunday, November 29, 2020. NHB will be closed November 25-29. 

If you attend studio classes, you will be sent Zoom links to attend those classes remotely November 30-December 6. 

Studio classes resume December 7.

We are so grateful for your commitment to keeping the NHB community safe and healthy!

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.
