Taking the rough with the smooth
Monday 27th July 2015
We want people to #BackBoocla because we’ve created something irresistible, which will propel professionals and small businesses forward in the fitness industry and beyond.
We take note from Misty Copeland who, in June this year, became the first African-American performer to be appointed an American Ballet Theatre principal dancer in the company’s 75-year history.
Despite experiencing a turbulent childhood, but finding solace in her dance, Misty joined ABT’s studio company in 2000 and then became part of its corps de ballet the following year. In 2007, Misty reached the rank of ABT soloist.
She is a force to be reckoned with, having overcome agonising injuries and being a published author of two works in 2014: New York Times best-selling memoir Life in Motion; An Unlikely Ballerina and the award-winning children’s picture book Firebird.
At just 32, and having accomplished so much - including breaking down the barriers of the stereotypical ballerina across the world - we think Misty is pretty cool. There’s a lesson here in triumph over tribulation.
You’ve got to take the rough with the smooth.
So, in the last days of our Kickstarter campaign to raise $25,000, we’re seeking supporters to champion our own case so that we can dance to our favorite tune too!
