Premier Blackswan ballerina
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.
Sweet greetings, dear sister Amanda Sonnet Beckford.
I’ve never seen or heard of Ms Misty Copeland, I know that Harlem has had great achievements in ballet. However, I’m really pleased and impressed with the wonderful outstanding amazing achievements of Misty Copeland.
I’m really glad that you #shared this Post, which shows #thepowerofSHARING
Every time I think of Misty, I’ll remember you too, my dear sister, as you are both very POSITIVE!
