    Was so looking forward to this but I will be away, I hope I'll be able to watch it online at a later date??
    I also hope that the Bolshoi have had some advice on their section - after class their segment is seriously underwhelming - ahem, boring. ...
    Finally I'm hoping that we get to see ALL of the Royal Ballet class - especially all of the grand allegro - which was interrupted last year by a silly item on fashion I think - & we ended up missing the men perform some exciting jumps.....

    I can't wait. This is always an inspiration for me and ballet.

    I am not on Facebook (and don't want to be). Will I still be able to watch World Ballet Day 2017? I have watched it in its entirety non-stop (and I'm an OAP) in previous years with no problems. I second the above request for the RB FULL class. One of the reasons I love the Australian Ballet is that we do get the full class without interruptions.
