On Wednesday 1st November for the very first time the Silver Swans at 'Dance with Sonia Brown' shared a rare 'fly on the wall' glimpse into one of their ballet classes, in honour of World Ballet Day 2023.
For 10 years the top professional ballet companies have live-streamed their classes and rehearsals for the world to see, and this year we decided to do the same!
We’re hoping it gives reassurance to people who’ve always wanted to try ballet but have found the thought of taking the first step too daunting. From the comfort of their own home, everyone will be able to see the level of ballet we get up to, and what sort of people attend. Hopefully it’ll inspire people to start dancing, as do the professionals on the live streams, but on a more attainable level.
