I’m in the process of a little independent investigation, which I’ve titled We Are Not All Black Swans: Ballet in Popular Culture and the Media. When I’m done with it I may work it into a paper (FOR FUN, it’s not required for anything) because I’m a nerd like that.
It’s still in progress so titles/topics/order subject to change.
