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.
Thank you Mr. Mitchell for helping to change the classical ballet world for our community! Your impact will never fade. The first black principal dancer @nycballet !!! You gave me so… https://t.co/VCyrvDbWbA
