About the Author

Misty Copeland came to ballet late at the age of thirteen, and went on to make history by becoming a soloist at American Ballet Theater only a few short years later. She is only the second African American soloist in ABT’s history and the first in more than two decades. Performing in a variety of classical and contemporary ballets, Misty’s most important part to date is the title role in The Firebird. Misty’s passion is giving back, especially by mentoring children. She has worked with many charitable organizations and has been honored with an induction into the Boys & Girls Club National Hall of Fame. She is also the author of Life in Motion, her memoir. Firebird is her first children’s book.
