Who else is just a little bit excited that World Ballet Day is back for 2020? Team Ballet
Papier is thrilled!
We have all had a topsy-turvy year so far due to the pandemic and, unfortunately, the
uncertainty continues. Despite this, dancers all over the world are gradually returning to the
studio, resuming rehearsals and starting to stage socially-distanced performances.
Welcoming World Ballet Day for its seventh year (on October 29, so a little later in the
month than usual) fills our hearts with hope. The beauty and magic of ballet – and all the arts
– will help us make the best of this strange time.
Last year’s World Ballet Day was the biggest yet, reaching over 315 million social media
users around the world.
For 2020, The Australian Ballet, Bolshoi Ballet and The Royal Ballet are uniting to bring us
morning class and more from their respective countries – and there will be global guest
companies galore too!
All the ballet companies will follow their local COVID-19 guidance to share live rehearsals,
interviews and behind-the-scenes insights.
World Ballet Day 2020 footage is being live-streamed via each participating company’s
YouTube channel or Facebook page and if you are in China you can watch on Tencent
Video. The recordings will be available on-demand afterwards too.
You can watch the entire online event live by visiting the World Ballet Day website.
Be Part. Be Proud. Be Positive.
The enthusiasm and creativity of all the dancers in the Ballet Papier community is incredible
so Team Ballet Papier always loves to see your celebrations.
conversation and celebrate your love for ballet.
Halloween is also scarily close so please do share your terrifying transformations with us!
