My Favorite Ballet Couples

The Art of Partnering

Most ballets are love affairs. Two dancers tell the love story with such commitment and passion that the audience feels as if their love is real. It feels like two human hearts beat in a single time. Ballet lovers are fascinated by long-term dance partnerships.

Margot Fonteyn and Rudolph Nureyev were certainly the most-loved ballet partnership of all time.

What makes a great dance couple today? It needs more than trust, empathy and respect to create extraordinary partnering. Please tell me your experience?

As always it is difficult to make a list of amazing partnerships.

Svetlana Zakharova & David Hallberg


Iana Salenko & Steven McRae

I need to mention that Iana and her husband in real life Marian Walter are an awesome dance couple as well.

Polina Semionova & Friedemann Vogel

Olga Smirnova & Semyon Chudin

Alina Cojocaru & Johan Kobborg

Natalia Osipova & Sergei Polunin

Katja Wünsche and William Moore

Diana Vishneva & Roberto Bolle
