Ballet's Color Problem, As Seen By A Royal Ballet Member
Eric Underwood: "In a corps de ballet, especially for women, the idea is to be identical: you're trying to move the same and not call attention to yourself. For someone who isn't white, that's difficult. You're left with a choice: you have to either become so great a dancer that you're not left in a chorus or a line, or embrace your beauty and hope others do, too." The Guardian (UK) 09/09/13
