Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that A Ballerina's Tale examines the life and career of Misty Copeland, the first African-American principal dancer at New York's American Ballet Theater. Not only is Copeland a significant role model for any young girl who dreams of a career as a dancer, she's also emerged as a important example for the black community, showcasing the ways the rarified world of classical ballet is evolving and becoming more diverse. There's no swearing, drinking, strong language, or sex, just lots of amazing dancing, so the film is excellent for anyone who's a fan of ballet.
