Do you have plans this weekend yet?! If you have a spare couple of hours, you should definitely add A Ballerina’s Tale to your schedule. The documentary, currently on Netflix, features Misty Copeland as she rises to the top and shatters the idea of what an ideal ballerina should look like.
I love any kind of movie about dance, especially ballet. This one is definitely one of my favorites now. I watched it one night while I was feeling sick and truly couldn’t take my eyes off the screen. Misty is a force. Watching her move, even if it’s just across a screen, feels like a privilege. She’s graceful and strong.
One of the best parts of the film is how she was set up with an incredible support system. All these women who helped pave the path before her lifted her up so Misty could break past her self doubt and her natural talent could shine through. It’s a great reminder that you shouldn’t hold yourself back and you shouldn’t be afraid to ask for help and support along the way.
