Black Ballerina is a story of passion, heartbreak and triumph of the human spirit. Set in the overwhelmingly white world of classical dance, it tells the stories of amazingly talented black ballerinas from several generations who face racism, exclusion and unequal opportunity while pursuing their dreams to dance. Interviews are combined with stunning archival ballet footage and photography to explore how the challenges of the past still exist in the ethereal world of ballet today.
