A Daily Kos piece about diversity or the lack thereof in ballet.


But not everyone believes having the “wrong” body is a major disqualifier for Black and brown dancers. [Theresa Ruth] Howard disagrees with the argument that Black bodies aren’t deemed “right.” The key is bringing more Black and brown dancers into the audition process.

“It’s a numbers game,” she said. “[If] you see 100 white girls, maybe 25 of them will have the ideal body for ballet. But if you're only seeing 25 Black girls, there's a good chance that nobody in that 25 is going to have the right body for ballet.”
