Interview with Misty Copeland

Welcome to “A Dancer’s Mindset” with Isabella! In this episode, we interview incredibly talented Misty Copeland. Misty has broken boundaries in more ways than one and hearing her wisdom and advices for young dancers is extremely motivating for us all!

Her unparalleled dedication and incredible talent have earned her a spot in the prestigious American Ballet Theatre as its first African American female principal dancer.

But behind her breathtaking performances and endless accomplishments, Misty faced numerous challenges, one being the pressure to conform to the traditional ideals of beauty and body image in ballet. In an exclusive interview, she candidly talks about how she had to reassess her relationship with her body and learn to treat it with the utmost respect.

The journey wasn’t easy for Misty, especially as a black dancer. Despite possessing the same exceptional attributes as her white counterparts, she noticed how conversations around black bodies in ballet were often negative and underplayed. But nevertheless, she persevered and emerged victorious, inspiring countless young aspiring dancers of color to pursue their dreams without limitation.
