360 Degrees of Ballet Behind-the-Scenes Goodness

November 3, 2015

Behind-the-scenes ballet features are becoming the norm these days (and we’re not complaining!). It’s amazing to have access to rehearsals and classes (World Ballet Day, anyone?), pre-performance rituals and everything in between. The Wall Street Journal just upped the ante with its 360 “virtual reality” video, featuring American Ballet Theatre soloist Sarah Lane preparing dance Aurora in Alexei Ratmansky’s The Sleeping Beauty. We’re able to see literally everything, thanks to the video’s “dragging” feature, which swivels the camera to reveal not only the rehearsal, but everything and everyone around it. Check it out below!
