NBS Alumni and Current Students in Conversation: Addressing Anti-Black Racism in Ballet
Join us for this discussion and hear about recent NBS activities at the online Alumni Event - Date TBD
Over two weekends in January and February this year, Canada’s National Ballet School—alongside the Dance Institute of Washington and Lauri Fitz-Pegado—hosted Addressing Racialization in Ballet. This symposium brought together more than 40 speakers to engage in meaningful and solutions-oriented discussions of equity, diversity and inclusion in ballet and ballet training. The conversations were rich, the presentations were deeply impactful, and the learnings promise to be lifelong.
We want to keep the momentum going, this time with a panel discussion exclusively for the NBS Alumni community. The event will feature discussions with NBS Alumni and current students, as well as updates about life at the School.
