I hope you enjoyed a fantastic summer and are ready to begin the fall. All of us at New Haven Ballet are excited to welcome new and returning students to the studio.
This is an exciting time to be part of New Haven Ballet and I feel privileged to be part of this community. Our first summer residency at Choate was incredible and I look forward to sharing news about expanding the program next summer.
You may see some new faces as Heidi Yu returns to the faculty to teach Levels 2, 3 and 4, and we welcome Julien Kanor who will be working with Mr. Tim and students in the Children’s Division.
During the month of September, I encourage students in Levels 3-8 to try something new by attending one or more of the nine weekly enrichment classes for FREE. Enrichment classes support and maximize a student’s progress and potential. Students in levels 3-8 should participate in at least one weekly conditioning class. Broadway and Contemporary dance classes build physical strength, flexibility, musicality, and broaden a dancer’s overall technical skills and artistry.
Finally, I understand many of us are focused on The Nutcracker. Auditions will be held September 23-24 and are open to students enrolled at New Haven Ballet in Creative Ballet 1 through Level 8. For those who have questions about the process I invite you to attend a meeting on Saturday, September 9.

Donor support and grants make bringing people together and giving back to the community possible. In 2022 New Haven Ballet was able to offer two free community performances. In this video take a look behind the scenes as we transform the Dixwell Community House (Q House) gymnasium into a beautiful performance space to share the magic of the holidays with the the City of New Haven.
