Congratulations Misty Copeland

Today our blog celebrates Misty Danielle Copeland, for her awesome achievement.

Misty Danielle Copeland is an American ballet dancer for one of the three leading classical ballet companies in the United States, American Ballet Theater.

Tuesday June 30, 2015, Copeland was promoted Principal Dancer At the American Ballet Theater, becoming the the first African-American woman to be named a principal in the 75-year history of American Ballet Theater.

Misty, was interviewed and this is what she said. “I had moments of doubting myself, and wanting to quit, because I didn’t know that there would be a future for an African-American woman to make it to this level,” Ms. Copeland said at a news conference at the Metropolitan Opera House on Tuesday afternoon. “At the same time, it made me so hungry to push through, to carry the next generation. So it’s not me up here — and I’m constantly saying that — it’s everyone that came before me that got me to this position.”

Today, we congratulated Ms. Copeland. We are proud and inspired.
