Life in Motion: An Unlikely Ballerina Young Readers Edition [9781481479790]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review
Determination meets dance in this middle grade adaptation of the New York Times bestselling memoir by the first African-American principal dancer in American Ballet Theatre history, Misty Copeland.

As the first African-American principal dancer at the American Ballet Theatre, Misty Copeland has been breaking down all kinds of barriers in the world of dance. But when she first started dancing-at the late age of thirteen-no one would have guessed the shy, underprivileged girl would one day make history in her field.

Her road to excellence was not easy-a chaotic home life, with several siblings and a single mother, was a stark contrast to the control and comfort she found on stage. And when her home life and incredible dance promise begin to clash, Misty had to learn to stand up for herself and navigate a complex relationship with her mother, while pursuing her ballet dreams.

Life in Motion is a story for all the kids who dare to be different, dream bigger, and want to break stereotypes in whatever they do.
AUTHOR: Misty Copeland made history by becoming the first African-American female principal dancer at American Ballet Theatre. The bestselling author of Life in Motion and a children's picture book, Firebird, she is the recipient of the Leonore Annenberg Fellowship in the Arts and an inductee into the Boys and Girls Club Alumni Hall of Fame. In 2015, Misty was named to Time magazine's 100 list and was one of Glamour magazine's Women of the Year. She lives in New York City. Visit her online at MistyCopeland.com.
