Thank you, Susan Pilarre

NHB wishFullSizeRender-44es to extend a heartfelt thank you to former NYCB ballerina and highly acclaimed School of American Ballet faculty member, Susan Pilarre, for providing a spectacular master class to NHB’s Level 6/7/8 students on February 2, 2016.

One highlight was when Ms. Pilarre recounted the moment Mr. Balanchine decided his dancers would pirouette from a long fourth lunge position.

A class to treasure and remember!

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.
