Misty’s story is the story of  an ultimate upset, a comeback from way back, and a tremendous turnaround.  She’s an African American, a.k.a., a black beauty who basically backed her way into ballet. She’s gone from living in a motel with her divorced single mom and siblings, to the cover of Time and Essence Magazines, to becoming a ballerina to behold. “She’s changing perceptions one step at a time.”

Misty Copeland is the embodiment of the American Dream. But more than that, she is a spiritual vision and sacred visualization of what faith and hope and love can do. Misty has overcome more obstacles than many of us ever would even dare to face.  Her story is captivating and compelling and gripping and engrossing – and it deserves to be heard and held in high praise.

I hope to see her perform soon. And you will to.
