Skin Color Is Not A Problem In British Ballet, Say These Dancers
"On Friday 5 October, at the Birmingham Hippodrome, Céline Gittens and Tyrone Singleton of Birmingham Royal Ballet will dance the lead roles in the company's production of Swan Lake
. In doing so, the pair will turn an important page in the art form's history. Both are mixed-race, and it will be the first time that the ballerina role has been taken by a non-white dancer."
