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 that have been adapted for remote learning.
Students and their families will be invited to a virtual performance of George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker®. The curriculum focuses on active art-making, collaboration, and critical reflection through poetry and creative movement.
"I love this program. It merges art and literacy and builds student confidence and creativity."3rd Grade Teacher, Brooklyn
