We Interrupt your Election Coverage for World Ballet Day

Yes, it’s that time again. I know, it snuck up on me too.

It’s World Ballet Day. This is the day when world class ballet companies all over the world invite you to attend their classes, live, and take you through rehearsals with their principals and soloists.

My current favorite ballet company, the Royal Ballet, will be streaming their events on its facebook page.

Joy Womack, currently a principal at the Kremlin Ballet in Moscow, will also be putting up videos. Check her youtube page out here for more of her videos.

Finally, I leave you with one of George Balanchine’s first ballets choreographed in the United States, the lovely, ethereal Serenade with music by Tchaikovsky.

 

Take a break, chill, sip your mug of hot spiced cider, grab your chair, do some plies, listen to some glorious music.

Enjoy.

  1. Thank you, riverdaughter!

    This is from Monotones, one of my favorite ballets. Choreography by Frederick Ashton, music by Erik Satie.

    • Ooo, I love Ashton.
      Royal Ballet has some fantastic new choreographers. The Winter’s Tale excerpts I’ve seen look amazing. I’m tempted to buy the DVD.

  2. Now you are talking…
    what a better way to get one’s mind away from the ranting trash…
    Thanks
