New Haven Ballet invites advanced-level students ages 11+ years to audition for our 2024 immersive, 2-week sleep-away summer intensive program. This program is designed to facilitate dancers reaching their full potential by strengthening ballet technique and artistry. During the intensive offered at Choate Rosemary Hall’s beautifully appointed facilities in Wallingford, Connecticut, dancers are offered daily classes that may include ballet technique, pointe, variations, men’s class, partnering, Pilates and conditioning, and more. We also provide coaching in classical repertory, and the program concludes with a free, open-to-the-public performance on the last day of the intensive at the Paul Mellon Arts Center.

Space is limited to ensure every student receives the individualized attention they need. Admittance is competitive. To schedule an audition, contact New Haven Ballet at tel. 203-782-9038 or administrator@newhavenballet.org.

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.
