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.
There was no blueprint. She wrote her own story. @mistyonpointe gives a voice for black ballerinas that came before her and paves the way for those to come. Misty unites young women through her determination and perseverance. We are resilient. #UnitedWeWin #WEWILL
