The Nutcracker Project

A look at The Nutcracker Project, a school residency program designed to encourage and showcase the artistic expression of students through exposure to New York City Ballet.

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.
