Congrats to Misty Copeland, who proves at 32 that you are NOT too old to become a principal dancer! Today she was promoted at American Ballet Theatre, making her the company’s first female African American principal dancer in its 75-year history.
Copeland also happens to be the featured guest on our 92Y Talks podcast this week. Listen here!
