Sportswear brand Under Armour launches collection with African-American Ballet Powerhouse, Misty Copeland



Sportswear brand Under Armour has launched a new capsule collection with african-american ballet powerhouse, Misty Copeland.

The collection, which is more active wear than dance wear, is a compilation of 13 designs (including parkas, harem jogger pants, and ventilated crop-top knits) inspired by her gruesome training regimen and her off-duty style.

Copeland, who made history as the first african-american principal dancer of the american ballet theatre, leaped into pop culture after a viral commercial with the brand surfaced in 2014.

The collection, which is out now, can be shopped here.

      She’s not a model. She’s one of the best ballet dancers in the world, as well as the first black principal dancer in the American Ballet Theatre. Google is your friend. Ballet dancers go through extremely rigorous training – this woman is beyond fit, Not to mention a huge inspiration to lots of little girls who have been told ballet is “white” or other such nonsense. she is a powerhouse.
