Shared Ability Choreography Project Through New Haven Ballet

New Haven Ballet’s Shared Ability program consists of weekly dance workshops for differently abled artists aged 8+ years. Classes are lead by Kerry Kincy, a teaching artist who uses dance as a tool to build social and cognitive abilities, and Brad Roth of Dancing Day, Inc. This wonderful program affords participating artists, including those with Autism Spectrum Disorder, Down Syndrome, cerebral palsy, and other challenges, and their families, a chance to dance, meet, interact and share their unique experiences with one another in a safe and supportive environment.

The goals of the program include increasing New Haven Ballet’s accessibility, creating an opportunity for New Haven Ballet and differently abled artists to meet, interact, and share their experiences and skills, and fulfilling New Haven Ballet’s mission:

“To provide the greater New Haven Community with exceptional classical ballet training, performances, and outreach programs, which nurture appreciation of ballet and foster the joy of dance.”

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.
