Watch: Misty Copeland’s Surprise Meeting with Young Black Ballerinas Will Make You Tear Up

A group of young Black ballerinas got the surprise of a lifetime when they met history-making performer Misty Copeland.

“Do you know one day, if you study this long enough, one day you could meet her,” the host of “Steve Harvey” told the girls from Chicago’s Mayfair Performance Company about their idol. “One day, you could be her. Wouldn’t that be exciting?”

The girls agreed before turning around and shouting in delight as Copeland, the first Black woman principal dancer with the American Ballet Theatre, appeared from backstage.

A group hug formed around Copeland and several dancers began to cry.

“It makes me emotional, too,” Copeland said. “It’s just, it’s not common and it should be … to see beautiful brown women doing ballet.”

The Mayfair Performance Company followed up the meeting by performing for Copeland.
