Bye-bye Ballet Pink

T.U.P.A.C. is leading the way in embracing and creating racial parity in the ballet community. All of our students wear tights and ballet slippers to match their unique skin tones; we also find that having the legs and feet match the skin on the face and arms, extends the line of the dancer.
