(12 p.m. GMT) -- Cunard has announced a partnership with the English National Ballet with performers joining Queen Mary 2 on a voyage departing Southampton for New York on August 11 2019.

The seven-night transatlantic crossing will feature special performances in the ship’s Royal Court Theatre -- including extracts from "Swan Lake," "Dust" and "Le Corsaire" -- and offer passengers the chance to meet leading dancers.

Passengers will also get the chance to watch morning ballet classes and afternoon rehearsals; take part in daily dance workshops and attend insight talks with dance-themed films and documentaries.

Angus Struthers, Cunard's VP marketing, said: "Dance in all forms is a passion for our guests and this unique partnership with English National Ballet is a great example of how Cunard wants to provide the very best of the arts on board. This voyage is a celebration of dance and what better lead partner than one of the world’s most revered dance establishments."

English National Ballet's executive director, Patrick Harrison, added: "English National Ballet is thrilled to be partnering with Cunard on this exciting voyage.

"Guests will get to experience the joy of ballet including performances and glimpses of behind-the-scenes. We’re very much looking forward to sharing our artform with the guests on board Queen Mary 2."
