Students from the seven schools of the organizing committee will join together in discussion to provide insights into the world of professional ballet and dance training, introducing segments from each school featuring behind the scenes and performance footage, exploring the following themes:

Adaptability – This topic will share how the dance world must evolve to meet the societal conditions of today and showcases how students and their schools have adapted to COVID.

Identity – Students will focus on how they see themselves on the stage and identify as artists discovering themselves, as well as showcasing the ideas around celebrating/embracing diversity.

Pathways – As COVID continues to challenge how students will enter the profession, this topic will share and discuss a variety of ways dancers are becoming professionals.


World Ballet School Day invites ballet schools to participate in this second edition

This year, the committee extends an invitation for ballet schools to participate in this second edition of WBSD by submitting a short video clip (no more than 20-30 seconds) of dance content that best represents their organization and connects with the above themes. These submissions will be edited into a celebratory representation of our global dance community. Submissions can be made online at
