Ballet Talk for Dancers

Movies/DVD: Free on Amazon Prime or Others Similar

Recommended Posts

These are available free right now on Amazon Prime. Since summer is upon us, we might enjoy a few of these with the DKs or just for us. Others are available with rental or additional subscriptions of other series like Qello Concerts. But these are freebies. Not all are the full ballets. Some are certain Acts.


If you are a Hulu, Netflix, or similar Online Video service and they have free ballet related items on their Summer Lineup, how about checking into it and adding them here.


Available as of 5/30/16
