You Should Meet: Misty Copeland

Amazon.com Rating:

Pirouette across the stage and get to know Misty Copeland -- the first African-American woman to become a principal ballerina with the American Ballet Theater -- in this fascinating, nonfiction Level 3 Ready-to-Read, part of a new series of biographies about people "you should meet."

Misty Copeland had always dreamed of becoming a dancer, but she had many obstacles to overcome before she could reach her dream. Although she was always challenged by the things that set her apart from other dancers, with a lot of hard work, dedication, and exceptional talent, Misty has become one of the most well-known dancers in America. And on June 30, 2015 Misty stepped on stage as the first female African-American principal dancer for the American Ballet Theater and made history!

A special section at the back of the book includes extras on subjects like history and math, plus a fun timeline filled with interesting trivia facts about dance. With the You Should Meet series, learning about historical figures has never been so fascinating!
