The Best Ballet Behind-The-Scenes Moments Of The Summer

March 16, 2020

With the surplus of ballet festivals happening around the world these past few months, it’s obvious that there’s really no such thing as summer break for the pros. But between the red-eye flights and onstage performances, our favorite stars still found time to soak up the sun and enjoy some seriously stunning views (even if they were from rehearsal). From Verona, Italy to Vail, Colorado, click through to see the highlights from the 2018 summer tours.

PNB Goes To Paris

While on their first tour in Paris, Pacific Northwest Ballet’s Elle Macy and company made sure to squeeze in some sightseeing—naturally visiting Paris Opéra Ballet’s home theater, Palais Garnier, was top on the list.

Roberto Bolle & Friends In Italy

Boston Ballet’s Misa Kuranaga practiced her lifts and showed off the insane view at the Verona Arena while dancing in Italy during the Roberto Bolle and Friends tour.

Bella At Ballet Sun Valley

Isabella Boylston’s husband had the best photobomb of all time when he jumped through her développé shot—and we can’t lie, we’re a little disappointed this didn’t make it onstage during the ABT principal’s hometown festival.

Houston Ballet Heads To Jacob’s Pillow

Houston Ballet’s Harper Watters and Natalie Varnum took barn ballet very seriously during their Jacob’s Pillow takeover.

Vail’s Cutest Couple

Patricia Delgado
and New York City Ballet’s Justin Peck took a break from killing it onstage at the Vail Dance Festival to melt our hearts.
