Friendly reminder that Misty Copeland is not the first African American female dancer/soloist with ABT, but the third.
She is the first in about 20 or 30 years, and that is an accomplishment. However, it’s important to acknowledge the women who came before her — Anne Benna Sims and Nora Kimball.

5 year old me when I lived in Texas and only wanted to wear my blue tutu and cowboy boots
Nothing like a good ballet class to remind you how much you love your career :)
