Watch Misty Copeland's Unbelievable Natural Talent in This 20-Year-Old Video

Natural talent goes a long way, but as most dance teachers know, when that gift is nurtured with solid training, the sky is the limit.

Authenticated by Copeland on her account, the now critically-acclaimed American Ballet Theatre star had only been training for one year (yes, only ONE year!) when the video was filmed. Cue the jaw drops!
