The American Ballet Theatre has named Misty Copeland its principal dancer – the first time a black ballerina has held the prestigious role.
Ms Copeland, 32, made her debut this month, starring in Swan Lake in New York, one of the most coveted roles in ballet.
In recent years, Ms Copeland has found fame outside of the ballet world.
She has appeared in commercials and TV shows and wrote a best-selling memoir.
