Lovely ladies: a screen shot from "The Guardian"'s first peek at Bolshoi company class.
What's the only thing better than seeing gorgeous professional ballet dancers onstage? Watching them in their daily class, where we can observe them working through their flaws, just as we do in our own ballet classes. (Well, admittedly, their flaws are a bit less obvious than ours.)
The Bolshoi Ballet is on tour in London right now, and last week British paper The Telegraph got a little peek at the troupe's ballet class. But tomorrow morning, they're giving us the whole shebang: livestreamed video of a complete Bolshoi company class, in all its sweaty, intimate, beautiful glory.
The bad news? The class is at 11 am London time, which means East Coasters will have to get up at 6 am to catch the feed. But really, could there be a better reason to drag yourself out of bed? (And if you're a West Coaster who can't quite stomach the idea of getting up at 3 am, never fear: A version of the stream will be available to watch on The Telegraph's site until August 26.)
