New York City Ballet’s Founding Choreographer George Balanchine is best known for his iconic work The Nutcracker, but did you know that he also choreographed over four hundred other ballets? From the world of Greek gods to the Scottish highlands, you’ll see some of his greatest masterpieces and learn about the dance legacy he created for generations to enjoy. This program is the perfect introduction to Mr. Balanchine’s choreographic world for any ballet beginner!
