The New Haven Ballet

Now in its 20th year, the New Haven Ballet provides the finest classical ballet training in southern Connecticut.

The school's curriculum is designed to develop strong, flexible, and versatile dancers who can adapt to a variety of styles and dance forms.

The faculty of the New Haven Ballet is committed to helping students reach their full potential regardless of whether they plan a professional career in dance.

The skills acquired by students of the New Haven Ballet can take them far beyond the studio and stage and help them succeed in every area of life.

Pre-Primary 1 and Pre-Primary 2 combine elements of creative movement, body awareness, and rhythmic exercises using games, visualization, props, stories, and improvisation all in a ballet context. Primary 1 begins formalized ballet training while retaining creative elements from the Pre-Ballet levels.

Students learn all of the primary exercises and steps in these levels. Extra concentration is placed on flexibility, body alignment, terminology, and dance history. Special emphasis is also placed on strengthening the students for pointe work.

Elementary 2 is the introductory level for pointe work. Students also learn to fully integrate head, arm and leg movements. In Intermediate 1 through Advanced 2, the emphasis is on detail and quality of movement, concentrating on developing each student's individual artistry as well as addressing any weaknesses. Placement at these levels is based on previous training, strength, natural ability, and age.

The beginner course starts with the assumption that the student has no previous ballet experience.

Within six months to a year most students will be prepared to start the Beginners/Intermediate course, in which steps are assembled to create combinations in a more challenging format.

The Intermediate/Advanced level gives students the opportunity to perform more challenging combinations as they work on artistry and stamina.
