CityStream: PNB Names First Black Principal Dancer

Jonathan Batista grew up in the slums of Rio de Janeiro, but he never let his place in life deter his dreams. Batista now holds a place of prominence in the ballet world, but his path to success took work. He worked hard and demonstrated tremendous determination, and he had a bit of good fortune along the way. Recently, he was named Pacific Northwest Ballet’s (PNB) first Black principal dancer, a title he cherishes. For PNB, this is proof of its commitment to diversity at all levels.
