Years ago, it seemed most big stars in the ballet world came from places like Europe and North America with a few from other places like Japan, Cuba and Argentina. Nowadays the talent pool has expanded, and more and more big names are coming from countries like China, Mexico, Brazil, South Korea and many more. There is an expansion underway due to globalization that seems like it will only continue and fuel the exposure to, and the passion for, international arts like ballet. More and more dancers are coming from a wider range of ethnic, racial and religious backgrounds. As ballet expands it is changing, and we want to take an in-depth look at what these forces are and bring their stories to global audiences. Ballet already speaks to people on a profound level, but imagine the level of engagement when people all over the world see ballet as something that represents them. How will they feel when ballet becomes something attainable? This is the beginning towards ballet becoming a truly global art form that welcomes all to take part and engage with dance and art lovers all over the world.
