African-American Ballet Soloist Misty Copeland Stars in Inspiring New Under Armour Ad

Posted in: , , ,

Misty Copeland dances for The American Ballet Theater, and is one of the very few African-American soloist ballerinas. In this Under Armour ad, she opens up about some of the rejection she faced before getting to where she is now.

Her short but exquisite dance in the video is justaposed with a young girl's voice reading out a real rejection letter Misty has received including telling her she had the wrong body for ballet.
