Have a look at medici tv. Lots of music and documentaries. A couple of offerings for ballet: click on VOD and then choose Dance.

Well, it sure beats the AUTHORITARIAN version, where the Sylph and her Secret Police break down your door at midnight, pillage your house and beat you with rubber hoses.

MoveTube is Luke Jenning's discussion of ballet clips available on YouTube that is published in the Guardian (UK) newspaper since last October. He describes why particular dancers are so good with enough detail to isolate individual moves. Highly recommended.
