We could probably do a post a day just on all the Misty Copeland stories that are appearing these days.

Copeland, the American Ballet Theatre soloist, is the dance world’s “it” girl these days and this article correctly describes the way her renown has transcended the ballet world thanks to her spectacularly inspiring Under Armour commercial and other appearances.

The New Yorker has published a great must-read story on the Copeland phenomenon that does a great job at putting her accomplishments in context.

The Huffington Post also has a terrific online conversation that it did with Copeland on its HuffPostLive channel that’s worth checking out.
