Misty Copeland knows how to put on a show.
As the principal dancer at the American Ballet Theatre, Copeland also knows how to attract new audiences to see a ballet, many of whom are witnessing the beauty of it for the very first time.
Behold, the Misty effect.
“The Misty Effect” describes the unprecedented impact Copeland has on people who are either experiencing ballet for the first time, or they’re gaining a new appreciation for the art because of Copeland’s contributions.
As a magical black ballerina, Copeland stands as a symbol of excellence for countless people of color who look to her as an endless well of motivation and empowerment. For that reason, many black families travel to the Lincoln Center in New York City to see her in action during her rendition of the iconic, “Swan Lake.”
