Black Girls Rock: Twin Dancers Are Accepted to American Ballet Theatre’s Prestigious Summer Program
Twin sisters Nia and Imani Lindsay have been accepted into the prestigious American Ballet Theatre’s (ABT) Summer Program on scholarship. The young girls have been walking since 8 months and have been dancing ever since. At 10-years old the two are trained in jazz, ballet, contemporary, hip-hop, and tap dance. They are also fluent in English, Spanish and French.
While they reside in Canada they made a trip to New York City to audition for ABT’s Summer Intensive program and found time to sit down with Cipriana of Urban Bush Babes to discuss their big news, bullying, their beautiful natural hair and why they love Misty Copeland: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ply4Rjz_UZM
Such an inspiration! I am so insanely proud of these girls.
They couched it in language… People don’t realize how much power is in language. Explains why so many queer folks dive into the academy - we’ve finally been given language and modes to express what we’ve been experiencing our whole lives. Real talk MLK, real talk.
My hair be like: Look, I know you got 2 PT jobs or whateva, but I’m over here gettin that #FULLTIMEWERQ in.
Part of my answer & offering to the BPTT question “What is on the other side of your body’s joy/shame?” is the realization of the ways the PHYSICAL emBODYed experiences (hips, thick lips, dark skin, non-“normative”[European] beauty, etc) of our queer-POC-artist-ancestors informed their work.
Those who have come before us were/are genius artists who have not only thought/shared brilliant art & thangs but also endured life as queer people of color in a time when QTPOC were barely recognized as human (& mentally healthy), let alone being listened to. Their work & lived experiences paved the way for the nuance in our collective & individual QTPOC bodies to be[gin to be] recognized as valid.
Along with these bomb A$$ visuals done by the incomparable @_mzsoulful, my recently formed Boi Band (made up of all Masculine of Center Womyn of Color incl. @ultraaradical, @cali7star, & yes, @_mzsoulful again! Told you, incomparable!) is gon’ rock to classics by D’Angelo, Amy Winehouse, Frank Ocean & the like. 4:00 SHARP-4:20p ppl! Don’t miss us! <3 Can’t wait to share this with you all.
