92Y Announces

MISTY COPELAND AND CALVIN ROYAL III

AN ONLINE CONVERSATION WITH BUDD MISHKIN

SUNDAY, APRIL 19, 5 PM, $5*

 

Misty Copeland has been breaking down all kinds of barriers in the world of dance. In 2015, American Ballet Theatre promoted her to its top ranks, making her its first African American female Principal Dancer. Today, acclaimed as “the biggest draw in dance right now” by the Los Angeles Times , a crossover star with international reach, she’s trying to be “a platform for the dialogue and conversation of race within ballet.” This May, prior to the cancellation of American Ballet Theatre’s Spring season at the Met, she and Soloist Calvin Royal III were set to make history as the first African American lead dancers with ABT to dance Romeo and Juliet together. Join them as they discuss this historical marker, overcoming barriers, and their careers with journalist Budd Mishkin.

*92Y is confronting tremendous financial losses due to COVID-19.

All ticket purchases will help sustain our beloved institution and will also support the creation of new, online programming that will bring comfort and inspiration to our community.

Together, we will get through this. Please consider making a donation at 92Y.org/HelpNow.
