The Nutcracker Family Benefit

Saturday, December 10, 2016

One of New York City’s favorite holiday affairs, the 2016 Nutcracker Family Benefit was held on December 10, and helped 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 began with a matinee performance of George Balanchine's The Nutcracker® and was followed by a holiday party on the Promenade, complete with dancers from the performance who joined in the festivities to sign autographs and take photos with guests.
