In Turning Pointe, journalist Chloe Angyal captures the intense love for ballet that so many dancers feel, while also grappling with its devastating shortcomings: the power imbalance of an art form performed mostly by women, but dominated by men; the impossible standards of beauty and thinness; and the racism that keeps so many people of color out of ballet.

For ballet to survive the twenty-first century and forge a path into a more socially just future, a reckoning with one of our most beloved art forms, whose past and present are shaped by gender, racial, and class inequities, is essential.
