Join us as we celebrate BalletMet’s 45th anniversary and Artistic Director Edwaard Liang’s 10th season in one of Columbus’s most exciting new venues!

For more than 30 years, The Nutcracker Ball has been a magical, memorable event. Sponsors and community leaders gather to entertain over 300 guests to celebrate the season. Enjoy a gorgeous evening of celebration, fine dining, dancing and holiday cheer.

Proceeds from The Nutcracker Ball support BalletMet’s professional Company and artistic productions, the BalletMet Dance Academy scholarships and our community education and engagement programs. BalletMet is committed to employing artists to create and perform world class work, educating the next generation of dancers and working with schools to boost learning.

We welcome table sponsors and individual guests to join us!
