Principal dancer for the American Ballet Theatre, Misty Copeland, recently appeared on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert and gave an exceptional performance accompanied by renowned cellist Yo-Yo Ma.
During her appearance Copeland spoke to Colbert about diversity in ballet saying she has never felt a cultural burden in speaking out about race. "I've always felt very comfortable, and it's felt very organic, for me to speak about race because I understand the importance of bringing more diversity to classical ballet," Copeland said. "It's never felt to me like a burden or anything I was putting on."
