Black History Month Spotlight: Cassa Pancho MBE
In the final Spotlight of our Black History Month series, we catch up with Ballet Black’s ‘Boss Lady’ and Director, Cassa Pancho MBE. Cassa very kindly shoehorned some time in her diary with us at an incredibly busy and exciting time, as the Ballet continues its current UK tour. We tap into her perspectives on a number of topics, including how attitudes towards Black and Asian artists have shifted in recent years, why it’s so important to engage young people in changing the landscape of classic ballet, and how the company’s vision has evolved since its original conception.
