Misty Copeland Visits the Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club!

In Q1 of 2021, Kips Bay Boys and Girls Club received a visit from Ballet star, Misty Copeland.

Copeland credits the beginning of her success to the Boys and Girls Club; "My story's so relatable," said Copeland.

 

"For people to know that I started at Boys and Girls Club, to know that I came from poverty, to know that I'm one of six children of a single parent home, and African-American, which is also rare in the world of classical ballet."

In the above video, Copeland took time to dance and hang out with some Kips Bay members. Thank you Misty for spending some time with us here at The Bay!
