NEW ORLEANS — Due to the coronavirus outbreak, the New Orleans Ballet Association’s leadership team has decided to suspend all education, health and wellness and arts healing programs until further notice. Upcoming productions of Houston Ballet on March 28 and Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo on April 18 at the Mahalia Jackson Theater have also been postponed. Both companies have been rescheduled to the 2020-2021 season of dance, which will be announced in the coming weeks.
“The New Orleans Ballet Association’s top priority is always the health and safety of our participants, staff, artists and families,” said Executive Director Jenny Hamilton. “Our leadership team remains committed to bringing dance and wellness back to the community. We will continue to monitor updates and follow recommendations from local, state and federal officials while we take proactive steps to minimize the spread of COVID-19.”
