Get to know Misty:
The Corcoran Group: Why did you choose to live in the Upper West Side and in your particular apartment?
Misty: The Upper West Side has been nicknamed the dance belt amongst the dance community. It’s convenient whether you want to take an open ballet class at Steps or if you’re a member of New York City Ballet or American Ballet Theatre, you’re near Lincoln Center which is where we perform. It’s become home over the past 15 years that I’ve lived in NYC. I’ve lived in many apartments on the UWS and the apartment I’m in now is everything I’ve always wanted. I feel like I’m a part of a community, it’s safe, and my apartment is spacious.
TCG: How do you unwind at home after a performance?
M: A glass of Prosecco and an old movie. Or a basketball game with my boyfriend.
TCG: When was the moment when you realize you were truly a New Yorker?
M: When I was comfortable enough in this strange juxtaposition of being an elegant ballerina and just another New Yorker riding the subway, sitting on the dirty floor by the stage door of the Met Opera House in my tutu and pointe shoes getting fresh air In between rehearsals.
TCG: What’s your morning regimen like?
M: I wake up at 8am and order breakfast immediately on Seamless Web. I listen to music while I get ready, then head out to take ballet class to warm me up for the rehearsal day.
TCG: What are your 5 favorite dance movies?
M: The Turning Point, Dancers, Dirty Dancing, Center Stage, Black Swan
TCG: Where is your favorite place in New York to pamper yourself?
