Cancel your plans for the rest of the day, because World Ballet Day LIVE is back and the livestream is already underway. This year's 22-hour program includes The Australian Ballet, The Bolshoi Ballet, The Royal Ballet, The National Ballet of Canada and San Francisco Ballet (plus, an assortment of other companies going live from around the world like The National Ballet of Japan, English National Ballet and Ballet West). Each company is giving us an inside look at their classes and rehearsals (think Christopher Wheeldon's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Justin Peck's Paz de la Jolla), as well as backstage access and interviews with some of the dancers and company's artistic directors.
