OOOh I love her. The New York Times did an article on her a couple weeks ago! It was one of the best ballet pictures I have ever seen, and it was a full page color one! It was fantastic. Unfortunately, they don't keep photos in the online archives (you'd have to pay) so I can't find it. But the article is called, Where Are All the Black Swans? from the New York Times if you wanted to look into it.

Hey,

Zoe Saldana was a ballerina before becoming an actress. She is the one on the left.

I have a lot of pictures, but I may only be able to find a couple at the moment.

These are Kitty Phetla






The one below is Kitty Phetla and Yolande Olckers. Isn't it beautiful?

I love Tanya Howard! Unfortunatley I couldn't find any photos of her dancing that I was able to upload but here is her head shot!




If you go on www.nationalballet.ca and go to videos you will be able to see a day in the life of a dancer featuring her and if you look at artists of the ballet you could see her dancing too :)

I'm so sorry for my bad results (lack of ballerina's). My (female) teacher who inspired me to become a teacher is black, but that is not helpfull.

I don't know how to post photos. But there is also Virgina Johnson from the Ballet Theatre of Harlem. I have a DVD of her dancing the role of the accused in Fall River Legend. She's truly a fantastic Lizzie Borden!! The DVD is older, I think she's retired now, I'm not completely sure.
