This amazing calendar has new photographs of Misty alongside her own stirring and impassioned quotes, and will encourage young people everywhere to believe in themselves.
Misty’s stirring story of overcoming childhood obstacles transcends the world of dance, making her a role model for anyone in pursuit of a dream.
Speaking of Misty Copeland, Wendy Perron, an author and former editor of Dance Magazine, said “We haven’t had a ballet dancer who has broken through to popular culture like this since Mikhail Baryshnikov.” Few would dispute her, considering that American Ballet Theatre named Misty as its first African-American principal ballerina, New Line Cinema optioned her New York Times best-selling memoir Life in Motion for a movie, and the 2015 Tribeca Film Festival closed with A Ballerina’s Tale, the feature documentary about her. Add to that her presence in mainstream publications, television ads, and fashion campaigns, and it’s easy to see why this remarkable woman of humble beginnings is so inspirational.
Misty Copeland’s 2018 Calendar is available from amazon.com and amazon.co.uk
