Ballet dancer Misty Copeland comes home to San Pedro

misty-copeland-breeze.jpgMisty Copeland is the 29-year-old soloist for the American Ballet Theatre (and muse of Prince) who we told you about last year at LA Observed (Misty Copeland takes NYC.) This week she came home to make appearances in the harbor area, including a stop with theater students at San Pedro High School, her alma mater. New City Councilman Joe Buscaino was there too. "I pretty much don't have a social life," Copeland told the students. "At this stage in my career, I know how big of an opportunity this is, so I'm not going to mess it up." Story is in the Daily Breeze.
