    I saw 60 Minutes on Sunday. I was bowled over by Misty Copeland’s grace. She’s really a gorgeous dancer.

    You mentioned the difference in Misty’s and Marta’s relationships with their mothers. That was a big difference. Marta’s mother was warm and supportive. Misty moved out of her mother’s house and lived with her teacher. Then, when her mother insisted she move back home, she sued her mother. It sounds like they had an extremely bad relationship.

    Both dancers had serious dance-related injuries. Misty recovered enough to continue dancing professionally. Marta didn’t.
