Determination meets dance in this middle grade adaptation of the
New York Times bestselling memoir by the first African-American
principal dancer in American Ballet Theatre history, Misty Copeland.
As the first African-American principal dancer at the American Ballet
Theatre, Misty Copeland has been breaking down all kinds of barriers
in the world of dance. But when she first started dancing - at the late
age of thirteen - no one would have guessed the shy, underprivileged
girl would one day make history in her field. Her road to excellence was
not easy - a chaotic home life, with several siblings and a single mother,
was a stark contrast to the control and comfort she found on stage. And
when her home life and incredible dance promise begin to clash, Misty
had to learn to stand up for herself and navigate a complex relationship
with her mother while pursuing her ballet dreams. Life in Motion is a story
for all the kids who dare to be different, dream bigger, and want to break
stereotypes in whatever they do.
