Misty Copeland Gets Married and A Seiko Watch
Misty Copeland Principal Dancer
Who's Misty Copeland? She is a ballet dancer. That's not saying enough, though. She's so much more. She's a powerhouse. After finding much adversity, Misty has worked her way into becoming the Principal Dancer for the American Ballet Theater. Misty is the first African American woman to do so. She battled stereotypes and severe injury. She has a New York Times Best Seller book, Life in Motion: An Unlikely Ballerina. Not to mention her hit documentary, A Ballerina's Tale. Her book and documentary both tell her remarkable story. Misty has become a symbol of strength, grace and determination.
