Misa Kuranaga is the first Asian principle dancer in the Boston Ballet.

Everyone is born with something that they struggle with. You need to fight for your own goals, and not somebody else’s standards. – Misa Kuranaga

At only 5’1, Kuranaga does not fit the traditional mold of a ballerina; however, she did not let that stop her from achieving her dreams. When asked to give advice to young dancers in similar situations, Kuranga said, “Everyone is born with something that they struggle with. You need to fight for your own goals, and not somebody else’s standards.”

In an interview with the Huffington Post, Misa said, “I have a strong head. Even if I don’t have the most beautiful body for a dancer, I was lucky enough to have every part necessary. I’m able to use my whole body. I feel like I have the inner strength to work hard, and that is the quality that helped me become a ballerina.”
