Small but mighty! 

New Haven Ballet is a small community based nonprofit ballet school. We do a lot with very little. That is part of what makes us special.

Ticket sales and tuition do not cover our expenses. Your generosity motivates us to work hard to produce performances and programs, bring the best teachers, offer the best classes and upgrade our facilities. As you will see tonight, when we once again showcase The Nutcracker, Act 1 (Sunday Cast), we also curate amazing films of our performances. 

We are constantly striving to improve.

Please help us continue this work so that we may continue to provide community programs, like Shared Ability and DanceAIR, offer the highest caliber training, and superb performances.

New Haven Ballet is a registered nonprofit organization, under the section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, and therefore all charitable donations are deductible to the full extent allowed by law.

The Bank of America Charitable Foundation is providing a matching pool of $10,000 to inspire giving to visual and performing arts organizations.

Young dancers ages 3+ are invited to dance at New Haven Ballet this summer. We offer classes in June and July for new and returning students. Under the direction of Artistic Director, Lisa Kim Sanborn, and Children’s Division Director, Timothy Fountain, young dancers are introduced to the joy of movement using their whole bodies. Dancers enjoy making good friends while building strength and endurance through exercises designed for developing bodies and minds. Dancers also learn coordination and how to stretch while moving gracefully.

New Haven Ballet is offering a modified class schedule May 31-July 2 so that students may keep dancing, and, for older students, prepare for Summer Intensive Programs. Students should register for their 2021-2022 class level and may participate in as many classes as are offered in their class level. Students are still required to take the minimum number of classes for their class level and may register for up to four weeks of classes during the June Term. New or returning students in levels 2-8 should email: administrator@newhavenballet.org to schedule a placement class.

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.
