Here's Your Exclusive Access to Misty Copeland's New Dancewear Collection

Dancers are all about personal style. Whether it's ordering custom rehearsal skirts or handmade legwarmers, there's something unique out there for everyone.

Well, almost. For dancers who need a little bit more structure or support from their leotards, the options are fairly limited. That's where Misty Copeland's new dancewear line, Égal Dance, comes in. The line, which launched yesterday, is made to be wearable and flattering for many different body types. Copeland has famously defied the typical ballerina-body expectations—and succeeded. If anyone knows what makes a comfortable and stylish leotard for a wider range of bodies, it's her.

We have an exclusive login for Pointe readers, which allows you to access the capsule collection during the pre-launch sale, until December 4.

Code: LAUNCH2016

Presumably Copeland's designs will sell out instantly, considering her viral fame and good taste. Now you just have to decide if you're going to spring for a gift or treat yourself. Find the collection here.

Why Planning Summer Study This Year Is More Complicated Than Ever

When it comes to navigating summer intensives, 2021 may be more complicated for ballet students than last year. On the heels of the COVID-19 pandemic's spring spike in 2020, summer programs went all-virtual or had very limited capacity. This year is more of a mixed bag, with regulations and restrictions varying widely across state and county lines and changing week by week.

Between vaccines and variants, can students aim for a full calendar of intensive training at local and national summer programs?
