Misty Copeland, a classical ballet Dancer who on June 30, 2015 became the first black woman to be promoted to principal dancer at the American Ballet Theatre is the subject of a new documentary…
Directed by Nelson George, A Ballerina’s Story covers Copeland’s impressive rise and all the challenges she faced throughout.
Fingers crossed that this documentary turns out well. Either way, with a figure so inspiring, of course I’ve already near enough exhausted the internet in my desire to know more about this amazing female.
The following Under Armour campaign from 2014 is the reason many who aren’t involved in the world of ballet know the name Misty Copeland; myself included.
Happy A Ballerina’s Tale 🙂
