A Date with The Art of Ballet

Fosbury & Sons is honoured to host two of the Royal Ballet of Flanders’ most profound performers. We present to you ‘A Date with The Art of Ballet’—a night of food and dance for you to relish. The performance of the night is brought to you by the highly-respected Aki Saito and Wim Vanlessen, who have graced the stage and made a name for themselves across the world, both as individuals and as a couple. They are respected both as dancers, teachers, and judges. Together they have danced the principal roles in numerous masterpieces including a new version of The Swan Lake, created for them by Marcia Haydée; The Nutcracker; and Sleeping Beauty. 'A Date with The Art of Ballet’ is unique, as you get the opportunity to see Aki and Wim perform up close, as well as enjoy an interview with these world-class performers at the end of the night.
