Exploring the emergence of classical ballet in the most unlikely places.
Ballet Rising will take you around the world to discover classical ballet in places you least expect. Join former Dutch National Ballet principal dancer Casey Herd as he takes you on a journey to visit ballet schools, watch electrifying new companies, and meet pioneers of the emerging ballet world. We’ll be traveling to the favelas of Rio de Janeiro, the humming city of New Delhi, and the colorful street of Phnom Penh and learning from ballet leaders in places like Nigeria, Iran, and Ethiopia. The explosion of new ballet talent in these places is going to blow your mind.
Ballet Rising is raising money to continue to bring inspiring stories to our audience around the world. Please consider supporting our recent trips to New Delhi, India and Rio de Janeiro and Uberlândia, Brazil and our upcoming visit to Lagos, Nigeria. In the meantime, keep up with our discoveries and conversations with ballet leaders in places like Nigeria, South Africa, and Iran on our website and by following us on social media. If you’d like to see more, help us spread the word by liking, commenting on, and sharing our news!
We can’t wait to show you what’s happening in ballet around the world!
With much appreciation,
