ESSENCE is reporting that ballerina Misty Copeland is getting her own reality-series on Oxygen titled “The Misty Copeland Project.” The world-renowned dancer will serve as a mentor to aspiring young dancers in New York City who want to take their careers to the next level and be a part of Misty’s Master Class.
“From the unbelievably inspirational and talented Misty Copeland to the bold young woman experiencing life abroad, … these projects embrace the new Oxygen programming which focuses on real characters who are on a journey to seek out new experiences and follow their true passions in life,” said Oxygen SVP Cori Abraham in a statement to ESSENCE.
Oxygen is hoping the new show will reach a young multi-cultural female demographic.
