Ballet Black

Ballet Black Dance Classes

Ballet Black is a professional neo-classical ballet company for international dancers of black and Asian descent. Founded in 2001, Covent Garden based Ballet Black runs educational schemes including the BB Junior School and the Ballet Black Associate Programme for teenage and professional dancers of black and Asian heritage.

Ballet Black’s ultimate goal is to see a fundamental shift in the number of black and Asian dancers in mainstream ballet companies, making BB wonderfully unnecessary.

Ballet Black is a registered charity no 1101599
