Join Chloe Angyal as she presents her new book Turning Pointe: How a New Generation of Dancers Is Saving Ballet from Itself. Angyal captures the intense love for ballet that so many dancers feel, while also grappling with its devastating shortcomings: the power imbalance of an art form performed mostly by women, but dominated by men; the impossible standards of beauty and thinness; and the racism that keeps so many people of color out of ballet. Tune in as Chole speaks with fellow author Jordan Kisner about the rigid traditions of ballet and a new generation of dancers.
