Living Legend: Misty Copeland
Misty Copeland might be promoted to principal dancer with the American Ballet Theatre according to the Wall Street Journal. Copeland has broken many barriers and myths and this would be a first for the company if she was promoted. Copeland has been in lead roles and performed as a soloist. She is not only popular in the ballet world but in pop culture as well. We are waiting with baited breath to find out if Ms. Copeland will be promoted. She definitely dares.
UPDATE: Misty was named principal dancer, making her the first African-American woman with the title in the company's 75-year history. Congratulations Misty!
