The Amazing Misty Copeland Barbie Doll Is Here!
Misty Copeland is the American Ballet Theater's first Black female principal dancer. The Netflix movie "A Ballerina's Tale", gives a glimpse into the life of the athletic and determined woman's rise to the top.
In the movie we see some of the trials she faced and how she was able to overcome them. You'll love seeing the circle of women who surrounded Misty and guided her as she sought to become the best at her craft. It's a great family movie - very inspiring to watch.
Last year Misty was featured in the "I Will What I Want" Under Armour ad that showed how strong and empowered the dancer is. The ad begins with the voice of a young girl reading a dance company rejection letter, but goes on to show what could happen if you ignore the no's and continue to fight for what you want.
Now Misty is being honored with a Barbie doll! What better way to get into the homes of young girls to show them their possibilities? What better way to show the world what girls are capable of? I can't wait to get my hands on the Misty Copeland Barbie and look forward to sharing them with all the little girls in my life!
