Today, June 30, 2015, Misty Copeland was promoted from soloist to principal dancer at the American Ballet Theatre. Even though the Theatre has been around for 75 years, Misty is the FIRST Black girl to ever claim this title, the highest one you can get in the ABT! During the announcement, she was feeling all the feels, as one would after making HISTORY!

Watch her discuss her journey in the video below, follow her on Twitter, and send her many props on her historic move:
