Let’s get one thing straight – I’m a big fan of Misty Copeland and Justin Peck - as dancer and choreographer.
As curators of ballet festivals, not so much. Copeland and Peck were invited by the Kennedy Center to curate Ballet Across America. I don’t have a quarrel with the companies they selected – they are diverse and from across America.
But… the choreographers? ALL MALE.
