New York City Ballet: The Nutcracker Project

Third Grade will be participating in The Nutcracker Ballet Project. I am so excited about this program because our students study Tchaikovsky’s music and this particular ballet in their music class during 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grade. This is going to be the PERFECT culminating experience for us! WOW! This project includes 5 sessions and tickets to The Nutcracker Ballet! WAHOO!


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 interdisciplinary workshops and lessons, and all participants attend a live performance at Lincoln Center. The newly-revised curriculum focuses on active art making, collaboration, and critical reflection through poetry and creative movement.
