New Haven Ballet is a non profit arts organization, is widely regarded as the standard for classical ballet training throughout the Greater New Haven Region. For over thirty years we have been providing the highest caliber professional classical ballet training and dance education in southern Connecticut to students preparing for professional careers or dancing for the sheer joy and pleasure of movement. The Children’s division is designed to instill a love of dance and music by providing age appropriate movement classes to those aged 3-7 years. By age 8 years, those who comprise serious recreational and pre-professional students participate in a graded curriculum of ballet, pointe, and contemporary. NHB also offers all levels of Open Division classes to students aged 12+ years, which cater to those who wish to enjoy dance purely for recreation.
