On Tuesday, October 2, 2018 join the Cincinnati Ballet as we celebrate World Ballet Day with a livestream of our company class on our Facebook page from 9:15 to 10:35 AM EST. Join Cincinnati Ballet Artistic Director Victoria Morgan, Ballet Master Oğulcan Borova, and our company of artists for a behind-the scene look at what it takes to be a dancer in our world-class company.
World Ballet Day LIVE is an annual celebration of dance held since 2014 in the first week of October. Ballet companies from around the world, including The Australian Ballet, Bolshoi Ballet, The Royal Ballet, Houston Ballet, Hong Kong Ballet, Boston Ballet, and many others will provide viewers with an inside look at the athleticism and dedication required for a life in professional ballet. It is a collaboration between major ballet companies around the world, which stream live video of their studio preparations in their respective time zones.
This year, World Ballet Day LIVE also wants you to share a video and to be part of the longest pirouette around the world. Be it in the studio, in your kitchen, on a beach all they ask is you go big. Upload your video or boomerang to Instagram or Twitter and use #worldballetday to be featured. If you’re in Cincinnati, use the #cincyworldballetday.
