Dare to Dream, a Dance History Project is part of the dance study of ballet in dance history class. The students researched a multitude of African American ballet dancers who have risen to the physical, technical, emotional, and social challenges and demands of the ballet world. These are strong inspirational dancers whom the 12th-grade dancers were encouraged to further their journey in their own training and creativity. This piece is a culmination of created phrases by the seniors who were motivated by the performances of these inspirational dancers: Precious Adams,  Lauren Anderon, Janet Collins, Misty Copeland, Michaela DePrince, and Victoria Rowell.
