Opportunity's Choreographer
Doris Jones Gave Black Students A Toehold in the Dance World


By Sarah Kaufman
Washington Post Staff Writer
Thursday, March 23, 2006; Page C01


Quote:
There are plenty of pioneers in the ballet world, choreographers who have molded the art form into new shapes, taken it in new directions, given it new meaning. And then there is ballet teacher Doris Jones, who took one of the most revolutionary steps of all by simply throwing open her doors to Washington's black children.
