Project Plié Targets Kids of Color
One program plans to change the world of dance, one child at a time.
American Ballet Theater is making big changes to the art world, and they’re starting with children.
A recently partnership with Boys and Girls Clubs of America has allowed the regional ballet company to create diversity programs.
Project Plié is a program that offers scholarships to younger dancers of color and trains teachers in underrepresented communities.
The American Ballet Theater hopes that by promoting diversity programs, more minority groups will become interested in the art.
