Since 1982, New York Dance Theatre, together with the Ohman School of Ballet, has presented the full length “The Nutcracker” story ballet every December.

This is a full production ballet with guest artists from leading companies and a cast of eighty children, semi-professional and professional dancers.

New York Dance Theatre’s Nutcracker welcomes you directly into the Silberhaus home as soon as you enter our lobby doors.  With live music to set the tone and a Victorian cast to greet you, you will immediately be immersed into the festive Holiday season.

We are Proud to Announce Our Guest Artists

Erica Pereira, Soloist with New York City Ballet, and Daniel Ulbricht, Principal with New York City Ballet and Artistic Advisor for NYDT, will perform the roles of the Sugarplum Fairy and the Sugarplum’s Cavalier in Ohman’s New York Dance Theatre production of “The Nutcracker.”
