New York City Ballet offers engaging programs for all audiences.
Drawing on its full resources — dancers, choreographers, educators, musicians, teaching artists and production personnel — the art of ballet comes alive in these lively programs intended to enhance your NYCB experience. With opportunities to interact with members of the Company and learn more about the legacy and innovation of NYCB, you will see ballet in a whole new light!
As New York City Ballet continues to prioritize the health and well-being of our patrons, artists, staff, and the community at large, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020-21 Season and annual performances of George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker®. Education programs held during this time are either postponed or offered remotely.
