The Royal Ballet take their morning ballet class led by Brian Maloney and accompanied by pianist Robert Clark, as filmed for #WorldBalletDay 2019.
Royal Ballet dancers take class six days a week to warm up for rehearsals and performances. As Kristen McNally described during World Ballet Day 2015, ‘class is all about getting the body warm for the day’s rehearsal – and it’s also a great time to concentrate on yourself, to improve your technique’.
Class at The Royal Ballet lasts about 90 minutes and covers a wide range of movements. It starts with exercises of increasing complexity at the barre before the dancers move into the centre of the room. This is a unique window into the daily life of a dancer at The Royal Ballet, showing the dedication and athleticism required for every step, as well as allowing viewers a unique look inside one of the Company’s rehearsal studios.
