ABOUT WORLD BALLET DAY LIVE

World Ballet Day LIVE is both a celebration of dance and a chance for online audiences to experience what it's like to be a part of one of the world's top companies. You'll see up close the athleticism and artistry of some of the finest ballet dancers as they take class and rehearse. And you'll hear from the artists about their work in exclusive behind-the-scenes interviews. Viewers are encouraged to get involved using the hashtag #WorldBalletDay.
