After leaving Lincoln Center after a full day of shooting runway shows at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, I bumped into this group of kids & asked them why they were out so late.

They told me that they had a 10 o’clock curfew at the School of American Ballet where they attended.

I was really intrigued to learn of a ballet boarding school & even more fascinated that at least 2 Black boys attended the school. It was a lesson in diversity for me.

So, after learning that they attended a ballet school, I asked them if they would do a dance for me. Only the young tall girl indulged me.

I was impressed & they made my night.
