This Is What One of the World's Best Ballerinas Eats Every Single Day

You don't have to be a dancer or ballet enthusiast to be familiar with Misty Copeland. Copeland started dancing when she was 13, and has had a long dance career, before she was ultimately promoted to principal dancer at the American Ballet Theater at 32, making her the first African-American dancer to ever be in this position.

In short, she's a prodigy.

I asked her everything from training schedules, to her favourite face mask, to exactly what one of the world's premier ballerinas eats in a day.
