The Nutcracker Fund for Children

An initiative by Les Grands Ballets

Unfortunately, we recently had to announce the cancellation of the Nutcracker Fund’s philanthropic activities.

Here at Les Grands Ballets, we believe it is important to get involved with vulnerable children and give them access to art and creativity. That’s why we want to give something back, despite this year’s difficult circumstances.

Please take a moment to read about our Romeo and Juliet youth project, created especially for elementary students from disadvantaged communities and for young people from foundations that work with vulnerable children.
