Hi Michaela! I watched the documentary First Position yesterday and by a stroke of sheer luck (like, seriously, I have no idea how) I found your Tumblr! I just wanted to say that I think you are a beautiful dancer, full of passion and energy. I also dance and I think it's amazing when you're able to see the love someone has for dancing.

Sorry, but I am not Michaela!

Here are her social media sites though

"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.”
