Colours of the ballet shoe - level 1
Traditionally, ballet shoes are pink. They do not come in more colours. This is a problem for people who are not white.
Pink ballet shoes do not look good on dark skin. People must paint them with make-up. This takes time.
One black man wants to change this. He talks about this on the Internet. A ballet shoes manufacturer contacts him. The manufacturer starts to make ballet shoes in more colours. This can make ballet more diverse.
Difficult words: manufacturer (a person who manufactures – makes something), diverse (with more people who are not white).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
