Is the ballet world racist? In light of the whole Black Lives matter movement im going to delve into the ballet world and share my thoughts, struggles and experiences as a male ballet dancer of colour. Racism is something that can only be changed from the inside of each person’s heart and that is the same with attitudes and situations in ballet. The heart of the human problem is the problem of the human heart.
DISCLAIMER: These are my own thoughts and opinions and i CANNOT and WILL NOT assume these are the same for every single person of colour.
I’d love to hear your stories also so send me a message or email or comment down below and let’s chat x
Welcome to Conner’s Corner! My name is Conner JC and I am a 21 year old Christian youtuber, professional male ballet dancer, sometime writer and wannabe Christian Councellor.
Conner’s Corner is a safe space for us to hang out, relax and momentarily escape from all the pressures of life through a bunch of advice, lifestyle and faith based videos.
I have a section on my channel called ‘Coffee and the Question’ which is where we get to really interact. This is where you send me a message or leave a comment asking for advice or help with a certain situation and i make a video about it and get everyone in the comment section to help out. It also is just a great way of us connecting and doesnt even need to become a video if you just want to chat
