Misty Copeland Is Now A Principal Ballerina At The American Ballet Theatre--Talk About A Promotion

July 1, 2015 by Rachel Gulmi
shefinds | Celebrity

For the first time in 75 years, an African-American woman became a principal ballerina at the American Ballet Theatre. That woman is no other than prima ballerina Misty Copeland. She is no stranger to breaking barriers of what a ballerina “should” look like. Most recently, Misty was the first black woman to star in “Swan Lake” that was performed at the Met.

Misty has been very passionate about showing others, especially younger girls, that you don’t have to look a certain way to be a ballerina. An online advertisement she did for Under Armour went viral and has more than 8 million views.

She spoke at a news conference on Tuesday at the Metropolitan Opera House, saying, “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. 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.”

Misty’s promotion was even captured on Instagram, by fellow ballerina Julie Kent. In the heartwarming video, you can clearly see she’s overcome with joy and fighting back tears.

Congrats, girl. So well deserved.
