Think ballet can't be badass? This ad will prove you wrong

US ballerina Misty Copeland had to fight to make it to the top.

THIS IS WHAT strength looks like.

Misty Copeland is the third African American female soloist ever to dance for the American Ballet Theatre, but getting there wasn’t easy.

In this ad for sportswear brand Under Armour, a voice-over reads details from rejection letters she got from various ballet academies when she was 13 years old.

They told her she had the ‘wrong body’ for ballet. Well. Just look what she can do.
