Elle Magazine: Misty Copeland Is the Most Badass Ballerina

Misty Copeland’s destiny was not to be a ballerina. At least, that’s what the letters from various ballet schools would indicate:

Dear Candidate,

Than you for your application to our ballet academy. Unfortunately you have not been accepted. You lack the right feet, Achilles tendons, turnout, torso length, and bust. You have the wrong body for ballet and, at 13 you are too old to be considered.

But will trumps fate. Today, Misty is a solo ballerina with the American Ballet Theater.

This Under Armour ad from their I Will What I Want promotion features the amazing dancing of Misty Copeland.

Under Armour is starting a new conversation with women. One that celebrates the WILL to find inner strength and to follow no one. Under Armour has launched a digital community where you can connect with other individuals, including our Women of WILL. You will also be able to participate in the first global fitness platform where women all over the world can support and spotlight each other for living their lives on their own terms.

Besides American Ballet Theater soloist Misty Copeland, the promotion features world champion downhill skier Lindsey Vonn and U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team player Kelly O’Hara.
