Northrop will welcome Misty Copeland, the first African-American woman elevated to ballet’s highest title of principal dancer in New York’s American Ballet Theatre for a special event. The program will feature Misty’s personal story of overcoming hardships as a young girl, her meteoric rise in the world of ballet and beyond, and her commitment to empowering youth worldwide. The master of ceremonies for the event is Robyne Robinson, and actress and Minnesota native Lea Thompson is a special guest. Proceeds from this event help support Northrop’s youth programming, which transforms lives through arts enrichment and education.
If you are unable to attend, please consider supporting our youth programs through a special gift to Northrop. A portion of each ticket sale is a tax-deductible non-refundable donation. Thank you!
A limited number of VIP packages will be available for $250 and will include a pre-show reception and a photo opportunity with Misty Copeland.
