A new trailer for Misty Copeland’s forthcoming documentary, A Ballerina’s Tale, has been released and it is absolutely captivating.

The professional American ballet dancer gave fans a glimpse inside the upcoming film that will chronicle rise of the dancer’s career. “I first discovered ballet at 13, I had no prior training, I had no prior experience, I had no exposure to it,” Copeland says in the trailer. “There aren’t any professional ballet companies or schools where I come from, San Pedro CA.”

The newly engaged dancer goes on to explain that based on “body type, pedigree and background” she should not have been part of the American Ballet Theater, one of the leading three ballet companies in the nation.

Despite being an anomaly, Copeland went on to be named one of Times 100 Most Influential People in the World and also becomes the first African American woman to be promoted to principal dancer in the American Ballet Theater’s 75-year history.
