Misty Copeland-Dance

Misty Copeland didn't begin studying ballet until the age of thirteen. She received an honorary doctorate from the University of Hartford in 2014 for her contributions to classical ballet. In 2015, she was promoted to principal dancer of the American Ballet Theatre. Misty Copeland continues to make history for people of color as the struggle for diversity in the arts continues. A video of one of her performances is attached to the blog.
