|Natascha F. Saunders had a chance to meet Misty Copeland|
*This month Misty Copeland made well-deserved history and I just had to jump online to share because when she dances I just cry for her beauty, elegance, grace, precision and for our history.
Misty Copeland was promoted Tuesday to female principal dancer at the American Ballet Theatre, becoming the first black woman in the company's 75-year history to hold the role.
Copeland, 32, is already arguably the most famous ballerina in the United States, having been the subject of a TIME magazine cover and a popular Under Armour ad campaign along with her high profile position at American Ballet Theatre. She has spent 14 years there, more than half as a soloist.
