About GCB

Garden City Ballet is not a typical ballet company… we do not operate a dance school, employ dancers year-round, tour the country, have a musical director, or perform with a live orchestra.

Our nonprofit organization is truly unique — with an average cast size of more than 100 local dancers, professional guests performing the lead roles of Sugar Plum Fairy and Cavalier, a dedicated Board, part-time staff, rotating artistic team, generous donors, and countless volunteer parents, we proudly bring The Nutcracker to life — year after year!
