On Saturday, March 19th, the multi-hyphenate actress, dancer, choreographer, television director, and television producer Debbie Allen will meet with history maker Misty Copeland for an intimate conversation about dance, the world, success, and what the future holds.
Misty’s meteoric rise as the first African American principal dancer in American Ballet Theater history was heralded by Time magazine in 2015, labeling Misty Copeland as one of the 100 Most Influential People in the World.
Allen, started her career as a dancer, choreographer and Broadway actress and became a household name as the star of Fame. She is the founder of Los Angeles-based Debbie Allen Dance Academy (DADA) with her husband, Norm Nixon. Most recently, Allen was invited to teach an African dance class at the White House with her students.
In addition to her work with DADA, Allen has also increased her involvement on the Shondaland medical drama, Grey’s Anatomy, and is currently serving as executive producer/director on the hit show. In 2010, Allen directed three episodes of Grey’s which lead to a recurring role. She then went on to direct four more episodes of Grey’s and also directed episodes of Scandal and How To Get Away with Murder, Empire, CW’s Jane the Virgin, and an episode of the Starz series Survivor’s Remorse.
“I’ve always worked toward a purpose bigger than myself.” – Debbie Allen
