Ballet occupies a unique position because it can be seen as an enclave of whiteness and privilege while the movement it authors is a colourblind art. The tulle that decorates dancers is delicate in appearance but also strong...the paradoxes are endless with ballet, it serves as a space where race, gender and sexuality can interrupt reductionism.
