With the weather finally warming up, the Royal Opera House stage has said a fond farewell to the dancers of The Royal Ballet as they decamp to Australia for the Company's annual tour and, following that, a well-deserved summer break.
But for those of us who can't imagine a summer without dance, Instagram sensation The Ballerina Project has been documenting a selection of stunning photographs of members of the Company, bringing their beauty and poise to unusual and unexpected locations around London.
Here's a selection of our favourites:
