I finally got around to watching the segment on Misty Copeland and found this little gem on the 60 Minutes Overtime setion of the website.

Here's the catalog entry from the NYPL:

News report on American Ballet Theatre School, New York, focusing on the school's auditions for admission and scholarships. The school's director, Leon Danielian, discusses the criteria for selection, the low success rate for aspiring dancers, and the difficulty of ballet as a profession. He and balletmistress Patricia Wilde are seen working with students in the classroom. A student's perspective is provided bysixteen-year-old Jane Hickey.
