EN POINTE: Black Dancers, Black History

WQED explores ballet and stereotypes – that still exist today. Author and dance historian Brenda Dixon Gottschild recently visited Point Park University, home of the well-respected Conservatory of Performing Arts (COPA), to discuss her latest book Joan Myers Brown and the Audacious Hope of the Black Ballerina. Meet diverse students as they train at COPA, and discover how these young dancers of color are shattering stereotypes and prejudice, and shaping the future of dance.
