The Nutcracker Family Benefit

Saturday, December 10, 2016

One of New York City’s favorite holiday affairs, the 2016 Nutcracker Family Benefit will be held on December 10, and will help raise critical funds for New York City Ballet and its education and outreach programs in addition to the School of American Ballet's Scholarship Fund. Always a fun-filled family event, the Benefit will begin with a matinee performance of George Balanchine's The Nutcracker® and will be followed by a holiday party on the Promenade, complete with dancers from the performance who will join in the festivities to sign autographs and take photos with guests.
