About this product
- DescriptionWhen she discovered ballet, Misty was living in a shabby motel room, struggling with her five siblings for a place to sleep on the floor. A true prodigy, she was dancing en pointe within three months of taking her first dance class and performing professionally in just over a year: a feat unheard of for any classical dancer. But when Misty became caught between the control and comfort she found in the world of ballet and the harsh realities of her own life (culminating in a highly publicized custody battle), she had to choose to embrace both her identity and her dreams, and find the courage to be one of a kind. Life in Motionis an insider's look at the cutthroat world of professional ballet, as well as a moving story of passion and grace for anyone who has dared to dream of a different life.
- Author BiographyMisty Copeland made history by becoming the third African-American ballerina for the American Ballet Theatre, and the first in decades. A recipient of the Leonore Annenberg Fellowship in the Arts and inductee into the Boys and Girls Club Alumni Hall of Fame, she currently lives in New York City.
