Ballet Black is a professional ballet company for international dancers of black and Asian descent. We aim to bring ballet to a more culturally diverse audience by celebrating black and Asian dancers in ballet. We perform and offer community driven classes for dancers and students, young and old.
Our ultimate goal is to see a fundamental change in the number of black and Asian dancers in mainstream ballet companies, making Ballet Black wonderfully unnecessary.

Ballet Black does not receive any regular government funding. Since we began in 2001 we have been generously supported by the kind donations of friends, independent donors and small charitable donations. We would welcome any support you may be able to give to assist us.
