Support the Ballet: The Nutcracker

Fundraising Goal: $50,000

Together we can make Clara's dream come true.










We are very excited to start our 52nd season of dance and overjoyed to have our students back in person at Northeast School of Ballet. Thank you for your continued support during the last 2 years. We are still dancing because of your generosity during the COVID-19 pandemic. While Northeast Youth Ballet, NSB’s performing company, is operating, our budget has been badly hit by the pandemic as Northeast Youth Ballet has been unable to stage a full length story ballet performance for two years. We are thrilled to announce that this winter we expect The Nutcracker, our family holiday favorite, to return to the stage. The ballet will be performed at the J. Everett Collins Center for the Performing Arts. However, we need to raise significant funds to bring this enchanting story to life and help Clara’s dream come true. These funds will be used to rent the theater and sets, hire lighting and technical crews, update our choreography, and create beautiful new costumes. As we have not been able to perform Nutcracker in two years, this fundraising is critical to our full return to the stage. Your donation will help Clara dance with her Nutcracker Prince and allow the Sugar Plum Fairy to shine on stage!

Your tax-deductible donation to Northeast Youth Ballet at one of the following levels will go even farther if you can make it a monthly donation. Northeast Youth Ballet is a 501c(3) charitable organization and 100% of your donation is tax-deductible. Today we are asking for a donation that will have long-term value. If you invest now in NYB’s Cinderella, you will be helping us return to the stage for our 2022 Nutcracker production and secure our 2022-2023 performance season. Help NYB get back on its feet.


Our goal is to raise $50,000.  t’s a big goal, but we believe together we can make this classic story of a young girl’s dream come true!
