Join Us to Watch Misty Copeland Chat With Dada Masilo

June 1, 2021

With the artists themselves acting as the interviewers, asking each other questions based on their personal experiences, the two compare their schedules and struggles, and the differences in their journeys as Black women in dance in the U.S. versus South Africa. They share vulnerable insights on stage fright and how that’s evolved unexpectedly with age. Most of all, they talk about their love for ballet, particularly the classics.

Clips of performances and rehearsals are interspersed with footage of their video chat—including glimpses of each performing their very different versions of Swan Lake and Giselle.

We hope you’ll join us.
