Charlotte Nebres

Charlotte Nebres  made history by becoming the first black ballerina to star as Marie – the young heroine of George Balanchine’s “The Nutcracker”.

Nebres, 11, starring as the first black Marie is a milestone for the productions, The New York Times reported.

Nebres, whose mother is of Trinidadian descent and father from the Philippines, is a student of the School of American Ballet. She was six years old when Misty Copeland became the first female African-American principal at American Ballet Theater.
