Misty Copeland literally leaped into the public consciousness through a well orchestrated and highly visible media campaign. Her performances with music icon Prince helped catapulted Copeland into the public eye.
Before performing to a cover of James Blake‘s “Retrograde,” she sat down down with Arsenio Hall to discusses working with Prince, being a ballet dancer with curves, and more. Earlier this month, the sole black ballerina at New York City’s American Ballet Theatre released her memoir, Life in Motion: An Unlikely Ballerina, which has made the New York Times Bestseller list.
