#vernonfrancois Thanks @OriginalBalletBlack for having me as a special guest in their brand-new London studio today. I dropped in to say hi before #WorldAfroDay tomorrow. We talked about keeping all kinks, curls, coils and waves in great shape, even under the glare of stage lighting, intense workouts and underneath wigs and hairpieces. Cassa Pancho MBE set the company up 17 years ago for international dancers of Black and Asian descent; plus, a ballet school in the same name in London which 150 kids attend. They are pushing boundaries in the classical ballet world. The dancers have such incredible strength of body and mind. You need to be mentally strong to know that you are good enough when barriers are faced, or if anyone tells you you’re not good enough. So, we had lots to talk about! Be the change. #cirarobinson #EbonyThomas #mthuthuzelinovember #ballet #balletblack #sayakalchikawa IF YOU SQUINT YOU MIGHT RECOGNISE THE 'DANCER' IN THE MIDDLE.
