It was with great interest that I stumbled upon Misty Copeland, a ballerina with the American Ballet Theatre.
The road that Misty Copeland has taken, has been a long and somewhat difficult journey. Born to Sylvia DelaCerna in Kansas City, Missouri in September 10, 1982. Her mother had been a cheerleader with Kansas City Chiefs, though she had also studied dance. So dance and movement was in the blood.
