Deborah Austin Sets The Record Straight

Recommended Posts

That link really belongs under PA ballet. Austin was one of my favorites at NYCB and was quite happy when she moved to Philadelphia with PA Ballet. Her dancing had the warmth and magic of Mearns. Many fine performances at Lincoln Center and Academy of Music.

Make sure that you place the marker at the beginning, as it's coming up at about 5 minutes for me and there is more at the beginning!

Thanks for posting this video -- I saw it on Facebook yesterday, but despaired of finding it again without scrolling for ages. What a lovely Sylph!

She was a wonderful dancer. Hopefully the history will be re-written. Ms Austin deserves to be recognized.

I agree, her shoes should also be part of the exhibit. The exhibit could place shoes from any African American who has reached an important milestone in the field, or made a significant impact/ contribution. Hopefully this new exhibit will evolve and grow.
