It's crazy what this ballerina can do.

A new video featuring a BAD ASS ballerina being BAD ASS has gone viral.

Misty Copeland is a soloist in the American Ballet Theatre. She is the first African American woman to hold that position in two decades and only the third in history overall.

And now she is one epic, bad ass ballerina.

She recently shot this commercial for sportswear brand Under Armour, and it’s going crazy viral because of her incredible story and amazing strength as an athlete:

Bad. Ass.
