Dear Friends,

BalletX stands with the Black Lives Matter movement. We recognize the systemic racism and social injustice that has divided our country for centuries. We believe in the fundamental right to freely express our views and opinions as Americans, and we condemn police brutality and violent tactics used against protesters exercising that right.

To our Black and Brown community, we remain committed to our core values of inclusion and freedom of expression. We are listening. We are learning. We will continue to seek out and support diverse voices in our artists, staff, and collaborators. We are speaking out now to affirm this commitment, because we believe at this point, silence is acquiescence.

We are a nonprofit organization that exists because of the support and love of our community. We believe a united community is a stronger community. We do not have all of the answers, but we as a team have pledged to be more purposeful in how we make decisions to support the advancement of diversity and inclusion within our BalletX family.

In solidarity and reflection,

BalletX Staff, Dancers, and Board of Directors
