8 Misty Copeland Quotes To Inspire You

When most people think of Misty Copeland, they immediately think of what a beautiful and talented dancer she is, but the fascination with Misty in the dance community goes far beyond her incredible talent.  Here is a girl who took her first dance class at a Boys and Girls Club at the age of 13.  This is not a girl who was groomed from an early age with sights set on a being a ballerina.   The dedication and determination she has, is such an incredible example to young women.

“I feel like I represent every young dancer, and even non-dancer, who felt they were not accepted by the ballet world.  I’d like to think that they can see themselves in me.”

 

 

“The path to your success is not as fixed and inflexible as you think.”

 

 

“You can find a pretty body anywhere…….what makes a dancer a true dancer is what they make of all of that on stage, and what they bring to the audience”

 

 

“I Will What I Want”

 

 

“There are muscles that we have in our feet that most human beings don’t even know that we have.  The strength that we have is so detailed.”

 

 

 “I hope that people who have seen me perform or seen an interview with me were moved and will remember a positive feeling.”

 

 

“You can do anything you want, even if you are being told negative things….stay strong and find motivation”

 

 

 

“I’m 5’2”, I started when I was 13, I’m black, but I’ve made it happen. I’m very lucky to be where I am… It’s possible.”

  1. I know my daughter sees you as someone she highly respects as a dancer. In a couple weeks she will be graduating from college as a dance major. She is looking for a quote for the top of her cap. Any ideas?

  2. I am very proud of following your heart at such a young age. Your gift was from God and you used it and went all the way with it. I found this quote and I want to share it with you. Your talent is Gods gift to you, what you do with it is, your gift to God. This was from Leo Buscaglia. I will be 77 in August, I studied music, acting everything to make me a great singer or actress, but back in that day I just did not follow my dream. I am now a struggling Gourd artist. If nothing happens with this talent I have now I will not stop creating my beautiful creations. God Bless you Sweetheart go all the way with Gods Blessings.
