New York City Ballet’s Fall Fashion Gala last night!!! Thank you @ezie_designs for the beautiful Queen dress and thank you @marty_taught_u for putting the whole outfit together!!
This man made it possible for me to be where I am today. He is the person who pushed me and showed me the ballerina I could become like no else could. He was a powerful force that taught me valuable lessons in ballet and in life. I’ll never forget how much he has influenced me. Today I dance for him... RIP Arthur Mitchell

So happy I got be apart of this project of a 100 fists honoring Nelson Mandela! Thank you @blackirisproject #Repost @blackirisproject with @get_repost ・・・ #BIP100Fists: Honoring Nelson Mandela #94 - Olivia Boisson (New York City Ballet) . "No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite." ~Nelson Mandela . Honoring the legacy of Nelson Mandela in a hundred day countdown toward the 100th anniversary of his birth (July 18, 2018), The Black Iris Project presents, “100 FISTS”, a photo series documenting 100 Black dancers around New York City of varying ages, techniques, and stages of their careers. This work, a collaboration between choreographer Jeremy McQueen and photographer Melika Dez, pays homage to the courageous strength and achievements of MADIBA, a freedom fighter and trailblazer in Black political organizing. .
