British ballet in prime position
Over the years Britain has produced some great names, including dancers and choreographers, who have entered mainstream public awareness and attracted a new audience to ballet.
Recently, stars like Darcey Bussell have propelled ballet into the limelight and, arguably the most recognisable name in ballet, Rudolf Nureyev, had strong connections with ballet in London. He spent a lot of time in the capital and has associations with both the Royal Ballet and London Festival Ballet (now English National Ballet).
Today there are acclaimed shows - from classical to contemporary ballet - taking place regularly at London's famed venues, capturing the imagination of a diverse audience, old and young.
