"I suspect that the resistance to raising black ballerinas through the ranks might be due to an old-fashioned way of looking at beauty. Our ideal of a perfect ballerina is based on Russian ballet with its willowy blondes.  If a director does not appreciate the aesthetics of African beauty, he will not want to promote a black ballerina to the status of prima, because the prima is supposed to be the most beautiful dancer.  She represents the aesthetics of classical ballet, which right now are Eurocentric.”

Can I just say thank you for reblogging so much about Michaele DePrince. I'd seen a few posts with her in from various ballet gifsets, but never any that actually said her name and until I followed you she was another of the many nameless ballerinas that flood my dash. Thank you for reblogging this fantastic and amazing dancer. Thank you for telling us who she is and how amazing she is. Thank you.

your welcome!
