From the Chicago Tribune:
Last year, 69% of works performed by the 50 largest ballet companies — including Joffrey and Hubbard Street — were choreographed by men. Women in dance are trying to change that.
A new article from Tribune writer Talia Soglin dives into the gender disparities in the ballet world, highlighting data provided by DDP. Soglin talks with Hubbard Street Dance Chicago’s new artistic director Linda-Denise Fisher-Harrell about what it means to actively create real diversity, both onstage and off, in the dance world.
