Tavis Smiley interview


Copeland discusses her life as a ballerina and the boundaries she breaks daily in this interview for PBS.

Ballet found me, I guess you could say. I was discovered by a teacher in middle school. I always danced my whole life. I never had any training, never was exposed to seeing dance, but I always had something inside of me. I would love to choreograph and dance around.

Misty Copeland interview


Copeland is interviewed by Hall on The Arsenio Hall Show. They talk about working with Prince and her challenges with her legs.

I think I was born to be a ballerina, I had no idea what it was. I wasn’t introduced to dance or fine art at all growing up. I came from very humble beginnings and was found in my middle school when I auditioned for the dance team.
