New Haven Ballet’s Studio Protocols describe requirements, which you must adhere to in order to participate in studio classes. These requirements include staying home if you or someone to whom you have had close contact is sick, wearing masks, social distancing, and adhering to travel restrictions.

Domestic Travel —

The Connecticut Travel Advisory places restrictions on visitors from dozens of states, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands. The most recent Executive Order from the Governor has led to a major change for many in our community: 

If you are coming from one of the restricted states or locations, you will have to quarantine for 14 days upon arriving in Connecticut.

Under State regulations, a negative test taken prior to coming to Connecticut is no longer a substitute for quarantining. 

You must also fill out the Connecticut Travel Health Form. Please visit CT.gov for a list of restricted states, and keep in mind that this list is subject to change due to health conditions across the country. 

International students should follow the guidance outlined on the CDC website, but in most cases will also quarantine for 14 days upon arriving in Connecticut.

Thank you for your cooperation and assistance in keeping our studios safe. We are excited to see you on August 31!


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.
