Dance on iTunes U
"The Royal Opera House will make opera, music, ballet and dance content available on iTunes U, a dedicated area within the iTunes store. iTunes U offers free educational content, available for download. Content on the Royal Opera Houseís site will include a specially commissioned series of films aimed at dance students, entitled In Rehearsal, shot by the Balletboyz. The first film, Romeo and Juliet In Rehearsal, shows Lesley Collier coaching Royal Ballet artist Leanne Cope in Julietís potion scene. The six films explore key works from The Royal Balletís repertory, including Mayerling, The Sleeping Beauty, The Nutcracker, Swan Lake and Giselle. The new films sit alongside a variety of existing multi-media content on opera and ballet from the Royal Opera House archives. These include film, audio and written resources on specific productions, or from the ROH Educationís Insight events programme, such as master classes, interviews with artists and backstage staff and sessions focusing on specific repertory. Almost 300 items will be made available, with the aim of releasing about 1000 items within the first year. The Royal Opera house is the first performing arts organisation in Europe to launch its own iTunes U site, and the third in the world (following American Theatre Wing and Washington National Opera)."

Do you have iTunes (a free download)? If you don't already have the software you need to choose a pc or mac version and download it to your computer.

Open iTunes

Open "iTunes Store" from the menu down the left side
You need to give them your credit card number the first time but you don't need to use it and there are lots of free podcasts.

Once the Store opens type into the search box in the top right hand corner:
royal ballet

When you get the search result scroll down

There are two iTunes U (I am not sure why) for the Royal Ballet (all free videos)
The first one has subjects you can subscribe to (to get all the videos)
The second one looks like it is the individual videos -- there are about 50 videos and pdfs on various subjects

I wish they had just one site that you could subscribe to but for some reason they have separated the subjects. I especially enjoyed the rehearsals.

The Royal Ballet has added an "Introduction to Ballet" (audio).
