World Ballet Day

World Ballet Day LIVE 

The first-ever World Ballet Day LIVE took place in 2014. The unprecedented collaboration between The Australian Ballet, Bolshoi Ballet, The Royal Ballet, The National Ballet of Canada and San Francisco Ballet gave viewers around the world a behind the scenes look at five of the world’s leading ballet companies. In 2016, the project evolved and was broadcast live on Facebook reaching even more viewers across the globe.

This year, World Ballet Day LIVE returns on October 2, 2018 and will feature The Australian Ballet, Bolshoi Ballet and The Royal Ballet. For more details, visit
