A SXSW 2020 Official Selection was created with the intention to inspire young Black women. This film brings the Chicago based Hiplet [hip-lay] Ballerinas centerstage. Hiplet™ fuses classical pointe technique with hip-hop and urban dance styles. Hiplet™ has blossomed immensely since it’s creation by Artistic Director Homer Hans Bryant in the early 90s. With elements of a Short Film, Music Video and Documentary, this artistic work not only showcases the talent of the Hiplet Ballerinas, it also gives them a platform to discuss the challenges they have faced with giving traditional ballet a hip new twist.
