Misty Copeland makes her Broadway debut in "On the Town", launches YouTube channel, & is engaged!

Misty Copeland made her Broadway debut as Ivy Smith in the revival of On the Town.

The New York Times' dance critic Gia Kourlas raved, "Ms. Copeland triumphed in that opening Miss Turnstiles number, in which football players toss Ivy overhead as her legs open in a straddle. (If only it had been danced on point instead of in soft slippers!) Drawing on her own formidable power as the male ensemble manipulated her through a tangle of overhead flips and hand-to-hand walks, Ms. Copeland, with sweet humor, sailed through them and landed on their shoulders with her arms raised in victory. This was her number; she owned it."

Misty just launched a YouTube channel called "Misty on YouTube". Her first video is about preparing for On The Town.

Misty recently got engaged to lawyer Olu Evans, whom she has been dating since 2004. They're looking at next summer for their wedding!
