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.

We've always known that Madonna loves dance. After all, the "Queen of Pop" studied at the Martha Graham School in the 1970s. Nevertheless, we were still surprised (and thrilled) to see that she invited James Whiteside to perform at her 61st birthday party in The Hamptons last weekend.
