Storyboard Text

  • Misty Danielle Copeland was born in kansas city Missouri, on Sept. 10, 1982, and was raised in San Pedro, California. 
  •  Copeland was introduced to ballet at age 13 at a local boys and girls club
  • Copeland became known for breaking barriers in the traditional world of classic ballet. Her African American heritage and fuller-figured, muscular body were considered by some as unsuited for classical ballet roles. Since the mid-1900's, the classically ideal ballerina’s body has generally been considered to be slender and delicate.
