Misty Copeland 2017 Calendar (Paperback)
about this item
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.This amazing calendar, featuring Richard Corman's beautiful photographs from his book Misty Copeland: Power and Grace and Misty's own stirring and impassioned quotes, will encourage young people everywhere to believe in themselves.
