Ballet Black

Between the five big ballet companies operating in Britain, there is little space left for newcomers to make an impact. But Cassa Pancho's small ensemble has a high-profile mission. Working with only black and Asian classical dancers, it aims to shift perceptions of ballet as a traditionally white preserve. In terms of technical standards, Ballet Black still has to establish itself (the bigger companies, belatedly nurturing black talent, are now tough competition), but it has laid down a challenge to the profession in the quality and imagination of its repertory.
