One of New York City’s favorite holiday affairs, the 2020 Nutcracker Family Benefit took place virtually on Saturday, December 12 at 2 PM EST. The unforgettable 30-minute program added a sprinkle of magic to the holiday season, featuring New York City Ballet Principal Dancer Tiler Peck as the Sugarplum Fairy, and took guests behind the scenes of George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker®.

This special afternoon also featured an exclusive sneak peek of On Pointe, a new docuseries from Imagine Documentaries and DCTV now on Disney+ about the School of American Ballet and the student performers in the production.

The Benefit helps raise vital support for SAB’s Scholarship Fund as well as New York City Ballet and its Education Programs. These programs thrive with your support and we are so grateful for your participation this unforgettable afternoon.
