Black, Brilliant, and a Ballerina, DDP Team Member Jenesis Williams Weighs in on Systemic Racism in Classical Dance
DDP is very proud to share a piece written by our incredible colleague Jenesis Williams for the DDP website. Our team recognizes the importance of taking a step back right now to amplify Jenesis' voice. We are moved by her powerful words and invite you to hear her thoughts and experience for yourselves in this piece for the DDP blog. Jenesis says it best herself: "I’ve been told that ballet is just a conversation between a dancer and the audience. If that’s true, it’s time we give young, black dancers a voice."
