‘Strictly Ballet 2:’ A Look at the World of Ballet
Teen Vogue produced a new documentary “Strictly Ballet 2” offering an inside look at the lives of teen dancers.
The show follows six ballet dancers from Cuba, Brazil, Russia and Clearwater, Florida at the Miami City Ballet School.
“I always thought a ballet class was the most democratic place in the world because you walk in and you are judged not by your race or gender or social economic position,” Lourdes Lopez, artistic director Miami City Ballet. “You are judged by your talent and your judged by your effort that you put in.”
The Miami City Ballet was chosen as the featured school because Teen Vogue’s Editor in Chief, Amy Astley, really wanted to promote the Hispanic ballet community.
