Misty Copeland was first introduced to ballet on a basketball court at the Boys and Girls Club. By ballet standards, she was too old, too curvy, and too dark to be a premiere ballerina. She didn’t fit the ballerina mold. So, she broke it and casted a new one. Pave your own path to success.

Misty Copeland, the first black principal dancer for America’s leading classical ballet company,the American Ballet Theatre, is significant not just for breaking a racial barrier, but for what her body represents. Copeland is not built like a ‘typical’ ballerina. She is shorter, more busty and — like her counterparts Serena Williams in tennis and Simone Biles in gymnastics — visibly muscular.
