The Nutcracker Family Benefit

One of New York City’s favorite holiday affairs, the 2015 Nutcracker Family Benefit, held on December 12, 2015, raised critical funds for New York City Ballet's education and outreach programs and 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.
