  • When I do my work, I want it to have this real visceral reaction whether it's bringing them to tears, whether it's inspiring them.


  • I want to show the world that beauty and grace are not defined by status or race.


  • My name is Aesha Ash, and through the use of ballet, I expose my community to more positive images of women of color.

    我的名字是 Aesha Ash,我想藉由芭蕾這項活動,對外展現我的社區非裔女性的正面形象。

  • - That's crazy. - That's where it all began.

    - 這很瘋狂。- 這裡就是所有故事的源頭。

  • Wow, so this is it.


  • Aesha grew up in the inner city of Rochester, New York, where crime, gun violence and poverty were amongst the biggest threats to the community.

    Aesha 生長於紐約市內羅徹斯特貧民區,這裡充斥著犯罪、槍戰和貧困,這些問題成為社區最大的威脅來源。

  • For us, that's normal.


  • That's just life in the hood, but what I remember the most is the dance studio.


  • I started dancing all together at the age of five.


  • A teacher mentioned to my mother that I had some promise in ballet and that it would be difficult for me, as a woman of color, to enter the ballet world.


  • But the adversity she faced was the very thing that pushed her to pursue a career in ballet.


  • She went on to become one of the few women of color to ever grace the stages of New York City Ballet School of American Ballet.


  • I felt like my entire career was catching up, and then, being a black woman in the ballet world,


  • I felt like I had to work twice as hard because of that as well, and there's so much negative stereotyping and misrepresentations of who we are perpetuated in the media.

    我總覺得我必須比別人付出 2 倍努力也是因為這原因,更何況有太多負面的刻板印象和不當陳述皆源自於媒體對於我們這族群的描述。

  • So, I began the Swan Dreams Project in 2011.

    我在 2011 年推動天鵝湖夢想計畫。

  • Through the use of imagery and my career as a ballet dancer, I challenge stereotypes that exist for women of color, particularly those from inner-city communities.


  • I didn't see anyone that had left the inner city of Rochester, New York, and come back here, and sort of expose all of use to look what you can become, look what I went off to do.


  • Aesha put on her tutu, grabbed a photographer, and started making her way through the very streets where she grew up.

    Aesha 穿上她的芭蕾舞裙帶上攝影師,便開始拍攝她所生長的社區大小街道。

  • And it was very profound the impact that I got back, especially from the people on the street.


  • Thank you, thank you for that.


  • There was the one image that went viral of me with the little girls, and I just pulled them to the side, just started doing some ballet class.


  • And that's when I realized I had something.


  • This has to be bigger than this.


  • And it began morphing and changing, and then people began asking for appearances.


  • Good job!


  • Who's next? Let me see you.


  • It's important that our girls see that side of themselves because for many kids, it's hard to be what you can't see.


  • I didn't see a black ballerina before.


  • I decided that's what I wanted to be.


  • It was really important for me to be in my environment displaying that because this is where I'm from.


  • It was always beyond ballet.


When I do my work, I want it to have this real visceral reaction whether it's bringing them to tears, whether it's inspiring them.
