Ballethnic's "Flyin' West -The Ballet"
Ballethnic Dance Company is excited to announce the reprisal of its “Flyin’ West – The Ballet,” the dramatic portrayal in dance of “The Great Migration” out West in the late 1800’s by former slaves and free Blacks to claim promised homestead lands. Adapted by Ballethnic Co-Founder Waverly Lucas from Pearl Cleage’s acclaimed play “Flyin’ West” -- this original ballet vividly depicts brave Black pioneers as they confront the racism by other settlers and the harsh realities dealt by the land.
