Misty Copeland, the first African-American woman to be
promoted to principal dancer at the American Ballet
Theatre, has long defied conventional notions of what a
ballet dancer looks like. She detailed the challenges she
overcame in her 2014 autobiography, Life in Motion
(Touchstone), subtitled An Unlikely Ballerina, which has
sold 56,000 print copies per Nielsen BookScan.
Now, in Ballerina Body (Grand
Central Life & Style, Mar. 2017),
her first health and fitness title,
she offers meal plans, workout
routines, and a message
regarding unrealistic beauty
standards. Karen Murgolo, v-p,
editorial director at Life & Style,
says that Copeland, who has a
more robust physique than the
typical ballet dancer, “wants to tell every girl and woman
that their body is great for them.”
Copeland isn’t the only professional bringing ballet to
the masses this spring.
Mary Helen Bowers, who
trained Natalie Portman for
her Oscar-winning role in
Black Swan, highlights her
Ballet Beautiful method in
Ballet for Life (Rizzoli, Mar.
2017). The book includes
exercises, posture lessons,
and wellness tips, accompanied by 150 photographs.
Rizzoli senior editor Caitlin
Leffel says that the book is
one readers might keep on
their coffee tables, “but it
also informs them of how to achieve a ballet-like
physique.” Model Alexa Chung, a devotee of Bowers’s
method, contributes the foreword. —D.L.
