Congratulations are in order for our favorite Ballerina…..Misty Copeland. Glamour has announced that she will be honored as one of their Women of the Year on November 9 at Carnegie Hall in New York City.
In June, Misty Copeland was promoted to principal dancer at American Ballet Theater, the first African American ballerina to reach that level in the elite classical ballet company’s 75-year history. Her memoir, Life in Motion, made the New York Times best-seller list; her “I Will What I Want” commercial for Under Armour went viral; and she’s doing all she can to reach communities with little exposure to ballet.
