Yesterday, October 1st was the second annual World Ballet Day, bringing ballet lovers from all over the world together online as we were invited to take part in the daily class and rehearsal periods of five major companies.

For a ballet freak like me, World Ballet Day is like being a kid and waking up on Christmas morning, with all of your presents waiting for you, all of your family gathering around, and an endless feast going on for hours and hours and hours, with none of it ever ending.

It was like heaven.

For this week's 5 on Friday, may I introduce the five companies who shared their lives with us yesterday.

1 - Suite en Blanc - composed by Edouard Lalo

2 - Spartacus - composed by Aram Khachaturian

3 - Manon - composed by Jules Massenet

4 - Sleeping Beauty - composed by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky
