TimesTalks: Misty Copeland

Join us for an intimate and inspiring conversation with Misty Copeland, the first African-American female principal dancer with American Ballet Theatre.

One of the most famous dancers in the world, Misty is credited with both broadening the audience for classical ballet and imbuing the art form with a renewed energy. This talk is a prelude to ABT’s spring season as well as a celebration of a special section of New York Times dance photography that spans more than a hundred years. Through archival images going back more than 100 years, we’ll look at professional dancers, nightclub revelers, New Yorkers dancing (literally) in the streets — and people moving their bodies to music in countless other ways. Misty will discuss her career and her favorite photos from the archives with assistant managing editor of The New York Times, Monica Drake.
