Rising star Misty Copeland makes history as the first African American Female Principal Dancer with the prestigious American Ballet Theatre.
When she discovered ballet, however, Misty was living in a shabby motel room, struggling with her five siblings for a place to sleep on the floor. A true prodigy, she was dancing en pointe within three months of taking her first dance class and performing professionally in just over a year: a feat unheard of for any classical dancer.
We can't get enough of @mistyonpointe & @marcelogomes47! Here they are in Twyla Tharp's SINATRA SUITE in our International Evenings of Dance program last weekend! Video by @nelshelby… https://t.co/yB7PSJuUe8
