May 2020 was to have been a special month for the American Ballet Theatre – the time to celebrate its 80th anniversary.
American Ballet Theatre – known as Ballet Theatre from 1939 until 1957 – was founded in 1939 by Lucia Chase and Richard Pleasant and its first performance was on 11 January 1940.
Chase was its director, together with Oliver Smith, from 1945 to 1980. Mikhail Baryshnikov took over until 1989. Smith returned with Jane Hermann from 1990 to 1992, when Kevin McKenzie took over as artistic director, a position her still holds.

International Dance Day is a global celebration of dance.
It has been celebrated each year since 1982 on 29 April, which is the anniversary of the birth of Jean-Georges Noverre (1727–1810), the creator of modern ballet. It was established by the Dance Committee of the International Theatre Institute (ITI), the main partner for the performing arts of UNESCO.
Although in lockdown, the Scala Opera Ballet company intends to celebrate it, albeit in a different way.
