Ballet Swan Lake Fouetée: Nureyev and Fonteyn

Watch more with these video collections:

This 1967 clip from Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake, legends Rudolf Nureyev and Margot Fonteyn give a very brief glimpse of the incredible athleticism involved in ballet. So. Many. Spins.

In the archives: more spinning and more ballet, including Amanda Smith, young Mikhail Baryshnikov, Milena Sidorova’s The Spider, and the Washington Ballet’s hardest dance moves.

This Webby award-winning video collection exists to help teachers, librarians, and families spark kid wonder and curiosity. TKSST features smarter, more meaningful content than what's usually served up by YouTube's algorithms, and amplifies the creators who make that content.
