Congratulations to Kerry Kincy!

New Haven Ballet faculty member, Kerry Kincy, has been named a 2021 Connecticut Arts Hero by the State of Connecticut Office of the Arts.

Ms. Kincy leads NHB’s Shared Ability program, which provides dance workshops to differently abled dancers.

The Connecticut Arts Hero Awards honor and celebrate Connecticut residents who are doing inspiring things in, for, or through the arts in Connecticut. Since 2016, the Connecticut Arts Hero Awards have highlighted an array of remarkable individuals engaged in or supporting the arts – some publicly and some behind the scenes.
The Hero Awards are presented at a special, open to all, free event.  This evening event is designed to honor and celebrate these inspiring individuals and to reaffirm the significant role the arts play in Connecticut. The Connecticut Arts Hero Awards will be presented on Wednesday, September 1, 2021 at 6:00 PM at Infinity Hall in Hartford, Connecticut. The event is free and open to all.
Please join New Haven Ballet in celebrating Kerry Kincy and her amazing work.

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.
