Black Ballerina documentary

BLACK BALLERINA, a feature length documentary-in-progress, is a story of passion, 

opportunity, heartbreak and triumph of the human spirit. 

Set in the overwhelmingly white world of classical dance, it tells the stories 

of several black women from different generations who fell in love with ballet. 

Six decades ago, while pursuing their dreams of careers in classical dance, 

 Joan Myers Brown, Delores Browne and Raven Wilkinson confronted racism, 

 exclusion and unequal opportunity. In 2014, three young black women 

also pursue careers as ballerinas. Do they find that the color of ballet has changed? 

If so, how? If not, why?

BLACK BALLERINA uses the ethereal world of ballet to engage viewers 

in a subject that reaches far outside the art world and compels viewers to think 

about larger issues of exclusion, equal opportunity and change.
