Synopsis

Few dancers make it to the highest levels of classical ballet. Of that already small number, only a fraction of them are black women. Misty Copeland, from the small California city of San Pedro, has pulled herself up the ladder at American Ballet Theater (ABT) from the studio company to the corps de ballet to soloist. The only rung in the ladder left to climb is principal dancer, aka prima ballerina.
