Misty Copeland knows how to put on a show.

As the principal dancer at the American Ballet Theatre, Copeland also knows how to attract new audiences to see a ballet, many of whom are witnessing the beauty of it for the very first time.

“The Misty Effect” describes the unprecedented impact Copeland has on people who are either experiencing ballet for the first time, or they’re gaining a new appreciation for the art because of Copeland’s contributions.
