The Swan Dreams Project

Recently came across this story about ballerina Aesha Ash.  Check out this empowering video of her project called the Swan Dreams Project:

“She 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.”

“Never underestimate the power of dreams and the influence of the human spirit.”Wilma Rudolph
Young people who are involved in making something beautiful today are less likely to turn to acts of violence and destruction tomorrow.”Janet Reno, former Attorney General (Farnum 1998).
