New Haven Ballet encourages students who attend classes and/or rehearsals on Friday, October 28, Saturday, October 29, and/or Sunday, October 30, to wear dancewear other than their class uniforms or other dance class appropriate Halloween costumes. 

Class attire must not compromise a student’s ability to dance fully; props are not allowed, and costumes may not leave glitter, feathers, etc., on the floor.

If you are so inclined, please make a donation to the NHB Annual Fund

We look forward to seeing your spellbinding attire!

New Haven Ballet’s Monday morning 10:00 a.m. beginning ballet class will be offered through November 28. This one-hour class is perfect for beginners, those who may have taken a long hiatus away from ballet, and those recovering from an injury who are reintroducing a slower paced, lower impact class as they return to full capacity. If you are interested in trying ballet for the first time we encourage you to attend our Monday morning class taught by Kelsey Paff in our beautifully appointed studio in downtown New Haven. Email: administrator@newhavenballet.org for more information.

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.
