Watch a Ballet Class LIVE

I know this is a blog majorly about BN. But, something like this is hard not to share.

The famous Mariinsky Ballet (or known as Kirov ballet) in St. Petersburg, Russia is showing one of their regular class LIVE to the world only on August 6th, 2014 6:55AM Eastern Time (USA). In India it would be August 6th 4:25PM.

It is an unique opportunity to have a glimpse at how ballet classes are being conducted. Even if the technique is western, the teaching class would give teachers an insight.

Dancers arrive dressed in the most peculiar assortment of clothes, and gradually peel off layers as they warm up and drive their tired limbs through the routines. It is this monotony that produces the grace, ease and elegance you see on stage – but precisely because it is such an intimate and stripped back occasion, it is usually also intensely private.

If you missed it, the video will be available for the next 7 days.
