solo songs!!
Anonymous

So sorry for just now getting back to you! I have been MIA from this tumblr cause of school and dance.. If you haven’t already picked a song I can offer a couple suggestions:

Try looking for covers of pop songs on youtube cause they are usually great for lyricals

I’m doing an instrumental solo this year so you could always look into some of those types of songs if you have good musicality!

Michaela DePrince 

 THIS IS SO FUCKING IMPORTANT!

black ballerina excellence

So gorgeous and elegant

Why is this important? i see a girl doing ballet, stop outlining difference, its important we just admire the skills, and afore mentioned ellegance

First of all shut the fuck up and have several seats 

and heres why in Michaela’s own words what she had to go through beig BLACK and still goes through

When she was around 8 and rehearsing for The Nutcracker, just a few days before the performance she was told, “I’m sorry, you can’t do it. America’s not ready for a black girl ballerina.”

For Michaela, “to say this to an 8-year-old is just devastating. It was terrible.”

When she was 9, a teacher told her mother: “I don’t like to put money into black dancers because they grow up and end up having big boobs and big hips.”

The dancer looked down at her petite figure and protested, “I don’t have boobs. I don’t get it.”

Instead of getting her down, “It makes me more determined,” she said. “Because I’ve been through so much, I know now that I can make it and I can help other kids who have been in really bad situations realize that they can make it too.”

This is why it is important, for little Black girls to see a black ballerina made it despite being discriminated against because of her skin color!!! 

And have many seats

Black ballerinas have a long history of going through so fucking much. I can’t with the colorblind shit.

Take a seat IN THE BACK. It’s cute and all to be like ‘all that matters is the skills’ but in the REAL world, UNFORTUNATELY, Black people are not given that opportunity.
