Hong Kong Ballet Celebrates Their 40-Years Anniversary

Ballet is a wonderful dance that originated from Italy during the Renaissance period in the 15th century. After that, it spread all around the world and was developed as a concert dance in Russia and France. Ballet requires discipline over the mind and the body and lots of practice to make every step perfect.  

Hong Kong Ballet is celebrating 40 years of their existence and decided to mark their anniversary by creating a unique photo campaign. Design Army is the studio who made the amazing photos for their campaign in 2018 and this year they repeated their success. Along with the talented dancers from the Hong Kong Ballet, they created a wonderful videography series and photos that show the beauty of ballet. With Maurice Ravel’s Boléro playing in the back, the dancers show their skills in amazing backgrounds with eye-popping colors, using pompoms and having dance-offs that will remind you of a Kung Fu duel. You can see them jumping in a sport field and drinking wine, while in the video you’ll notice extra talented grandmas dancing like nothing can stop them.  

We congratulate them on their anniversary and hope to see more!
