Dance Misty Copeland

In this June 15, 2015 photo released by the American Ballet Theatre, dancer Misty Copeland performs in “Romeo and Juliet.” Copeland, the Missouri-born dancer who has become a forceful voice for diversity in ballet and a rare celebrity in that field, was named principal dancer at American Ballet Theatre on Tuesday, June 30, the first African-American ballerina to achieve that status in the company’s 75-year history.
