World Ballet Day LIVE Streams on Facebook LIVE This Year

Our third annual World Ballet Day LIVE is a celebration of dance and an opportunity for audiences to see what it takes to be one of the world's top ballet companies, and get an inside look at the athleticism and dedication required for a life in ballet. 

This year, for the first time ever, World Ballet Day LIVE will stream on Facebook LIVE as the longest broadcast to be shown on the platform. The event includes 20 hours of never-before-seen content in collaboration with The Australian Ballet, Bolshoi Ballet, The Royal Ballet, and The National Ballet of Canada. Note that the live stream begins on October 3 at 8 pm PDT, with SF Ballet’s segment starting at 11 am PDT on October 4. To find out more, visit worldballetday.com.
