The Heart of Diversity, Unity, and Inclusion
Prompted by the death of George Floyd, the past few months saw the emergence of a national and indeed international dialogue about race. Carole's company has always been committed since its inception to embracing and cultivating diversity. Has a Creole founder and director and a multi-ethnic faculty, company and student body, Company Carole Alexis/Ballet des Amériques always championed inclusiveness and unity in celebration of our various cultural heritages and contributions, even when such positions provoked antagonism, discrimination and communal penalties. Ballet des Amériques regularly accepts professional dancers and students from a myriad of ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds, and our professional company’s repertory, choreographed by Carole Alexis, merges elements and styles from a plurality of cultures throughout the world.
