Misty Copeland Teaching a 3-Year-Old Girl Ballet

Try Not to Get Jealous as You Watch Misty Copeland Teach This 3-Year-Old How to Dance

When I think about inspiring women, one of the first who comes to mind is Misty Copeland. As the first black female principal dancer with the American Ballet Theatre, Misty is paving the way for women of color in ballet and beyond. When she isn't busy performing, you can find her enjoying one of the biggest events on TV like the Super Bowl.

If you found the lowest-scoring game in history to be boring, it's because you didn't have Misty performing live in your TV room. In the video, Misty is seen teaching 3-year-old Belle how to do chainé turns. Then, Belle takes charge of the session by showing off her leg extensions, to which an impressed Misty replies, "That's so good!"

"Belle took her first ballet lesson last week and became instantly obsessed," Priya Shukla, Belle's mom, told POPSUGAR. Not going to lie, we're slightly jealous of Belle and very impressed with her skills. Be sure to check out the adorable video above.
