aurleliusstyles-blog:


Ballerina Aesha Ash was recommended to leave the corps of the New York City Ballet because the master in chief basically said she had accomplished all she could as a Black dancer. After the decision to leave, Ash joined Alonzo King’s Lines Ballet, a company based in San Francisco, where she soared. Ash has been featured in Pointe Magazine, Dance Magazine, New York Times, and San Francisco Chronicle. She also started a blog, The Black Swan Diaries, for all those following in her footsteps to learn from her story as well as other Black dancers that share their experiences. She was also the dance double for Zoe Saldana in the film, Center Stage.
