George Balanchine's The Nutcracker relies on the talents of hundreds of people. More than 50 children dance in the ballet, and their performances are always in step. Host Chelsea Clinton explores how a group of very young dancers make the transition from the School of American Ballet to the stage of the New York City Ballet with remarkable aplomb. Fred Child introduces the segment.
