“Black Ballerina” Directed and Produced by Frances McElroy

May 3, 2018 | 6:00pm – 8:00pm

Directed and Produced by Frances McElroy, Black Ballerina tells the story of several black women from different generations who fell in love with ballet. Six decades ago, Joan Myers Brown, Delores Browne, and Raven Wilkinson faced racism in pursuit of careers in classical dance. Today, young dancers of color continue to face formidable challenges breaking into the overwhelmingly white world of ballet. Moving back and forth in time, this lyrical, character-driven film shows how far we still have to go and stimulates a fresh discussion about race, inclusion, and opportunity across all sectors of American society.

Black Ballerina is a production of Shirley Road Productions. Funders include the National Endowment for the Arts and Women in Film. It is being distributed by American Public Television. Frances McElroy, director/ producer of Black Ballerina, co-directed and co-produced the PBS documentary Mirror Dance. She is a 2009 Pew Arts Fellow.
