Our Community


Brown Girls Do Ballet® is more than just an Instagram, we are a community of dancers, instructors, studio owners,  brands, and photographers. Learn how to get involved with our mission of providing more opportunities for dancers of color below.



Ambassador Program


We believe that every Brown Ballerina with access to proper mentoring and training should have the opportunity to learn from more experienced Brown Ballerinas. In this vein, we have elected to establish the Brown Ballerina Ambassador Program. Learn more about the Jr. Ambassador Program (ages 10-12) and Youth Ambassador Program (ages 13-17) by visiting here.

Affiliate Photographer

Photographers grow us

Affiliate photographers are charged with introducing the world to the dancers in their cities and are also given first choice on our publication opportunities. Although the application period for 2016 has ended, photographers with a passion for dance are invited to submit ballet work year round for our blog via regular submission. If you are a dancer looking for a photographer who knows dance in your area visit here.
