Misty Copeland Visits Seattle
On a soggy Friday in Seattle, a bright ray of sunshine filled Meany Hall. Misty Copeland stepped onto the stage to a standing ovation. The delightful 30-something principal dancer of The American Ballet Theatre spoke candidly to a packed house of dancers and families for close to 90 minutes about her life struggles and her resilience. The director of the UW School of Drama acted as interviewer keeping the evening event flowing so smoothly the time flew past.
Misty eventually addressed her latest book, Ballerina Body, which many young dancers clutched to their bodies like a golden chain connecting themselves to her and her message. Misty addresses mind, motions, meals and mentors as a way to a fulfilled life and be at your best. It’s a great book for any person wanting to create a balanced life.
I purchased a copy and will be offering it in a giveaway very soon, so stay tuned to this blog for further information.
