The Nutcracker Project is designed to promote individual and group artistic expression inspired by themes, choreography, and music from George Balanchine's The Nutcracker®. NYCB Teaching Artists and classroom teachers engage students in virtual interdisciplinary workshops and lessons.
Students will be invited to a special matinee performance of George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker® at Lincoln Center. The curriculum focuses on active art-making, collaboration, and critical reflection through poetry and creative movement.
My students loved to see their own movements incorporated into their class dance. It made them feel valued and truly allowed them to express themselves.3rd Grade Teacher, Staten Island
