Ric Burns (New York) presents this rich, 75-year history of one of the world's preeminent ballet companies, from its earliest days as a small, financially struggling collective, to its pinnacle as one of the most respected and revered dance companies in the world. With unprecedented access to the company, witness dramatic live performances in Paris and Havana; grueling rehearsals at ABT's flagship studio in New York City; and slow-motion captures at Kaatsbaan International Dance Center in Tivoli, N.Y., with iconic dances by Misty Copeland, Gillian Murphy, Hee Seo, Marcelo Gomes, Isabella Boylston, Herman Cornejo, Daniil Simkin, Joseph Gorak, and Cory Stearns, who were chosen by artistic director Kevin McKenzie to illustrate the ABT dancers' formidable technicality, intricate artistry, and nuanced emotion.

David Bintley, director of the Birmingham Royal Ballet, explores how the Second World War was the making of British ballet and how fundamental the years of hardship and adversity were in getting the British public to embrace ballet. Bintley shows how the then Sadler's Wells Ballet Company, led by Ninette de Valois and featuring a star-studded generation of British dancers and choreographers including Margot Fonteyn and Frederick Ashton, was forged during the Second World War. It's the story of how de Valois and her small company of dancers took what was essentially a foreign art form and made it British despite the falling bombs, the rationing and the call-up. Plus it is the story of how Britain, as a nation, fell in love with ballet.Using rare and previously unseen footage and interviews with dance icons such as Dame Gillian Lynne and Dame Beryl Grey, Bintley shows how the Sadler's Wells Ballet company survived an encounter with Nazi forces in Holland, dancing whilst the bombs were falling in the Blitz, rationing and a punishing touring schedule to bring ballet to the British people as an antidote to the austerity the country faced to emerge post-war as The Royal Ballet.
