Brooklyn Ballet is launching our biggest production yet, the premiere of The Brooklyn Nutcracker at the world-renowned Brooklyn Museum. The Brooklyn Nutcracker is a updated take on a holiday classic, with multicultural dance forms, motion-sensor costuming, a digital set-design, and over 50 children performing from Brooklyn Ballet Youth Ensemble. Your support helps us provide choreographer and dancer fees, costume, lighting and set design, as well as rehearsa

Brooklyn Ballet travelled to West Virginia from November 1-3, 2014 to perform and teach master classes.

This is the first year since 2007 that Brooklyn Ballet has invited a guest artist to hold the position of Resident Choreographer for the Company’s performance season.

Brooklyn Ballet has always made it a point to collaborate with great musicians and provide live music in performance as often as we can.

We are overjoyed that this year we're collaborating with a new artist at every performance of our world premiere of Quilt/One Night Stand!

We're still hard at work on the technology components of our Brooklyn Nutcracker costumes, premiering in the Snow scene at our 2014 season (April 3-13).

Brooklyn Ballet loves broadening the work of the Company with new dancers with new strengths and experiences each season. We enjoy getting to know our newest recruits in rehearsals, and we thought you'd like an introduction to them, too.

Stay tuned for a series of introductions to our newest faces that will grace the stage this April!
