Ever seen 27 ballet dancers perform Swan Lake from their bathtubs during a pandemic?
Yea, neither had we… until now!
Ballet dancers from companies around the world recently came together to perform the main theme from Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake, but with a twist: each dancer is performing from home in their respective bathtub or pool.
The finished product is intriguing, albeit a little odd at times, but ultimately, it’s a tribute to creativity during this challenging time.
Among those taking part are company members from American Ballet Theatre, Boston Ballet, Houston Ballet, The Royal Ballet, Paris Opera Ballet, San Francisco Ballet, and more.
Watch below as they splash through pirouettes, pliès, and more!
