World Ballet Day is starting in just a few hours! This is a collaboration that live-streams morning and afternoon classes and rehearsals from 5 incredible ballet companies across the globe! We will get to see glimpses from The Australian Ballet, Bolshoi Ballet, The Royal Ballet, The National Ballet of Canada, and San Francisco Ballet.
Streaming starts in Australia, so it will begin airing for us on the East Coast at 9pm tonight (October 4th)! The night owls among us will get to see some of the early footage from Australia before we go to bed. Almost all of us will be asleep for the Bolshoi, but the early birds can catch the Royal Ballet starting at 7am on Thursday, followed by National Ballet of Canada and finally San Francisco Ballet.
Still Pointe has a special affection for Ballet West, the new home of our beloved student Deanna Cudjoe. Therefore, we are excited that Ballet West will also be represented around 6pm EST on October 5th during San Francisco's time slot!
You can watch the footage on the World Ballet Day website or through any of the 5 companies' official Youtube pages.
