Girls Do Ballet Inc. will roll out its newest fundraising experience that celebrates its ambassadors and
helps raise vital funds to support young dancers and local small studios
On September 30, 2023, Brown Girls Do Ballet will be hosting their first ever
“The Ballerina’s Ball” at Ridglea Theater in Fort Worth, Texas. The Ballerina’s Ball is a
celebration for Brown Girls Do Ballet ambassadors from around the world and help raise vital
funds to support young dancers in their continued training.
Brown Girls Do Ballet will be granting 2 scholarships and a small studio grant that will be used
to help offset costs to young dancers in training from classes to pointe shoes and to purchase
equipment for a deserving local small studio.
The Ballerina’s Ball will start at 3:00 pm with a Pink Carpet Experience, a silent auction to
fundraise for our scholarship program, and a performance by Clover the Violinist. Throughout
the event, there will be performances by Ballet Nouveau, Ballet After Dark, The Journey Dance
Center, and more.
“I am thrilled to unite the journey of past and present with the incredible individuals who’ve beenBrown Girls Do Ballet founder TaKiyah Wallace
part of this organization’s growth for the past 11 years. We hope this ball demonstrates the
boundless potential of young Brown Girls when empowered with mentorship and resources –
not just in dance, but in every sphere.”
Brown Girls Do Ballet®, a philanthropic organization often featured for its noteworthy Instagram
movement, began in 2013 as a personal photography project by TaKiyah Wallace in an effort to
highlight girls of African, Asian, East Indian, Hispanic, and Native American ancestry in Ballet
Today, the organization arranges ballet performances, photo exhibitions, and
provides resources and scholarships to assist young girls in their ballet development and
training. Learn more about Brown Girls Do Ballet at www.browngirlsdoballet.com.
