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.
Today we welcomed principal dancer @mistyonpointe Misty Copeland to St. Mary's, with the @EveryOneHome Youth Board and our Seniors, to talk about solutions to homelessness in the Bay Area. Excited to learn about her upcoming film and commitment to community.
