Misty Copeland and Calvin Royal III in Conversation with Budd Mishkin Online

Misty Copeland has been breaking down all kinds of barriers in the world of dance.

In 2015, American Ballet Theatre promoted her to its top ranks, making her its first African-American female principle dancer. Today, acclaimed as “the biggest draw in dance right now” by the Los Angeles Times, a crossover star with international reach, she’s trying to be “a platform for the dialogue and conversation of race within ballet.” This May, she and Calvin Royal III, a soloist at American Ballet Theatre since 2017, will make history as the first African-American lead dancers to play both Romeo and Juliet. Join them as they discuss this historical marker, overcoming barriers, and their careers with journalist Budd Mishkin.
