What adventures await for Clara and The Nutcracker as they set out into the winter wonderland of New York City? Come and see!

Additional Information


The Applause Dance Company requires all performance attendees to show proof of vaccination. Patrons must show proof of vaccination at the door. Without proof of vaccination patrons will not be allowed into facility. We accept all vaccination cards or virtual cards from certified Apps. Audience members younger than 12 must show a negative COVID-19 test, taken no more than 72 hours prior to showtime. We continue to update our policy based on information from New York City and the CDC; the most current information can be found at

We ask you remember that the Riverside Church is more than a church - we host many individuals currently ineligible for vaccination, including children of all ages via our Weekday School, Riverside Hawks and youth programs. We are also a gathering place for older adults and other vulnerable populations, and the safety of our staff, tenants, visitors and guests is out utmost priority.

Thank you for your support.
