Join author Chloe Angyal as she discusses her book, Turning Pointe. Turning Pointe is a reckoning with one of our most beloved art forms, whose past and present are shaped by gender, racial and class inequities, and a look inside the fight for its future. The book 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.
