Misty was born in Kansas City, but that wasn’t held against her.

She’s appeared in a Diet Dr. Pepper commercial

and went on tour as a dancer with Prince during his 20Ten tour

“My fears are that it could be another two decades before another black woman is in the position that I hold with an elite ballet company,” Misty wrote in her autobiography last year.

“That if I don’t rise to principal, people will feel I have failed them.”

Well, you have not failed us. So dance my black swan.

Dance.
