ABOUT THE AUTHOR:  Misty Copeland is a Principal Dancer at American Ballet Theatre, the author of the New York Times bestselling memoir Life in Motion, and the award-winning Children's book, Firebird. She made her Broadway debut in 2015's -On The Town-, putting a show that had reportedly been suffering financially for months into the Broadway Box Office Top Ten for the two weeks that she guest-starred as -Ivy Smith.- She's been featured in the New York Times, on 60 Minutes, and she was named one of SELF Magazine's -Best Bodies of 2014- and Time Magazine's 100 Most Influential People. The Kansas City-born ballerina, who in June 2015 became the first African-American woman to be named Principal Dancer in the 75 years of ABT’s history, has become a role model for young women around the world

ABOUT THE NEW BOOK:  The celebrated ballerina and role model, Misty Copeland, shares the secrets of how to reshape your body and achieve a lean, strong physique and glowing health. Misty Copeland believes -There has been a shift in recent years in which women no longer desire the bare bones of a runway model. Standards have changed: what women do want is a long, toned, powerful body with excellent posture.- In other words, the body of a ballerina. In her first health and fitness book, Misty will show women how to find the motivation to get healthier and stronger, and how to reshape their bodies to be lean and flexible, with step-by-step advice, meal plans, workout routines, and words of inspiration. Celebrating the importance of healthy fats and a fitness regimen based on ballet exercises, Misty shares her own time-tested exercises and an eating plan focusing on healthy fats, both of which keep her in top shape. Tips for motivation and words of encouragement as well as tips on how to keep going even when you may want to give up. An inspiring section on the importance of finding mentors, and eventually being one, plus excerpts from Misty's personal journal, round out this important book on grace and strength.
