Outstanding ballet photography

Today I’d like to share with you some of the phenomenally popular ballet photographs from the Ballet News facebook page. The photographs showcase all manner of ballets – from the romantic Margot Fonteyn era to the hyper extended fashions of today.

Please see the footnote if anyone has any information regarding the photographers and dancers where not credited. One of the photographers is also looking for your help in identifying the dancer in one of his shots – so please do get in touch if you know who she is (scroll down for the photo).

Enjoy !
