Happy World Ballet Day!
We are taking part in #WorldBalletDay Live!
World Ballet Day returns on Tuesday 19 October as companies across the world celebrate the power of dance.
See morning class and rehearsals, get a sneak peek of upcoming performances and see ballet’s biggest stars at work. Fill your day with dance, streamed for free across six continents.
We are delighted to be taking part again and we will premiere our video at 2pm BST on Facebook and YouTube (also available to watch afterwards), featuring stories from RAD teachers around the world, Fonteyn finalists and more.
World Ballet Day’s full schedule is available at worldballetday.com.
"Join us as we show some of the ways that dance has had a positive impact on people's lives over the last year. See how RAD teachers all over the world have kept their students engaged, catch up with our Fonteyn Finalists and join RAD President Dame Darcey Bussell in the studio as she coaches Anna Rose O'Sullivan, Principal of the Royal Ballet in Swan Lake."World Ballet Day from the Royal Academy of Dance
