5 Major Ballet Companies To Livestream Behind The Scenes On World Ballet Day

“World Ballet Day – October 1, 2014”

The first World Ballet Day takes place October 1 and sounds like a very special event:

“This unprecedented collaboration will see five of the world’s leading ballet companies – Australian Ballet, Bolshoi Ballet, The Royal Ballet, The National Ballet of Canada and San Francisco Ballet – presenting a live stream of rare behind the scenes action direct from their rehearsal studios.”

“From morning class to warm up the body with different exercises, moving on to rehearsals for their upcoming performances, the day will be a celebration of dance, the athleticism and unparalleled dedication of all those involved in creating a world-class ballet company.”

“Starting at the beginning of the dancers’ day, each of the five ballet companies will take the lead for a four hour period streaming live from their headquarters starting with the Australian Ballet in Melbourne. The live link then passes across time zones and cultures from Melbourne to Moscow to London to Toronto to San Francisco.”
