NEW YORK >> Dancer Misty Copeland is working on a health-and-fitness book.

Grand Central Life & Style, an imprint of Grand Central Publishing, announced that Copeland’s “Ballerina Body” is scheduled for 2017. Copeland, the first African-American woman to become the American Ballet Theatre’s principal dancer, is a member of President Barack Obama’s Council on Fitness, Sports & Nutrition.

Copeland said in a statement issued by her publisher that she wanted to show “all athletes have to take care of themselves from the inside out.”

Her previous books include the memoir “Life in Motion” and the picture book “Firebird.”
