The Color of Dance: A Celebration of Diversity and Inclusion in the World of Ballet (Hardcover)
by Takiyah Wallace-McMillian
For her first book, The Color of Dance, TaKiyah traveled around the United States seeking out dancers of African, Asian, East Indian, Hispanic, and Native American ancestry. With these more than 190 breathtaking images of colorful ballerinas of all ages and levels, both amateur and professional, TaKiyah gives a voice to dancers who have been underrepresented for too long.
With dozens of quotes throughout from ballerinas themselves, The Color of Dance redefines what this classically Eurocentric art form has looked like for centuries and will inspire dancers--and all of us--to pursue our dreams no matter what barriers are put in front of us.
