About Brown Girls Do Ballet

If you love ballet, chances are you’re one of the 100K+ Instagram followers inspired by Brown Girls Do Ballet. Originally a photo project, Brown Girls Do Ballet is now a movement that celebrates and encourages diversity in ballet. After photographer TaKiyah Wallace noticed “there were not any other faces that looked like” her 3-year-old daughter in local ballet studios, she decided to go find some. The resulting project shows the elegance of young dancers of color, and has since morphed into a non-profit dedicated to helping them become ballerinas. In 2017, Brown Girls Do Ballet released the short documentary We Assemble on YouTube, started the podcast Brown Girls Do, and expanded with Brown Girls Do Gymnastics, creating opportunities where there were too few before.
