A-list Misty Copeland is on pointe on the September issue of Essence magazine… and we were mesmerized. And, we’re not alone. Even she’s in awe of her history-making success, she tells the mag:
“I never knew it was going to get to this level. There are a lot of times when I wish it wasn’t so much. But I wanted this type of exposure for the dance community. I wanted it to be an opportunity for me to educate people and get them to become ballet fans and to educate them on what it means to be a black dancer — a black ballet dancer.”
Copeland’s Twitter fans were also thrilled about the glam-tastic shot. (Yes, we just made that word up. Deal with it.)
