Misty Copeland

American Ballet Theatre Principal Dancer and author Misty Copeland first made history in 2007 as the second African American to be promoted to the rank of “soloist” in two decades at the company. In 2015, Copeland made history for the second time, when she became the first African American female principal “dancer” in the American Ballet Theatre’s 75-year history.  Her rise to stardom has been inspirational, but also a feat that perhaps no one, even the ballerina herself, had ever expected. Her visit to the Speaker Series will be a triumphant homecoming for this groundbreaking ballerina, who was raised in San Pedro!
