According to The Hollywood Reporter, American Ballet Theatre soloist Misty Copeland will take center stage as she trains and mentors young ballerina hopefuls in NYC to help jumpstart their budding dance careers.
Here’s a synopsis on what we can expect:
As talented hopefuls from diverse backgrounds descend upon New York to take on the next major step in their ballet careers, who better to train and mentor them than Copeland — the renowned ballerina who herself has defied all odds and shattered boundaries by overcoming the cultural pressures of professional ballet. Copeland, who began taking ballet lessons on the basketball court of a Boys & Girls Club at age 13 and was considered a prodigy, made history by becoming the second African-American female soloist in the prestigious American Ballet Theatre. With the opportunity of a lifetime and chance to catapult to the top of the ballet world, these aspiring dancers' passion, commitment and hard work will be center stage in Misty’s Master Class.
