Brenda Braxton—"Passing on the Wisdom" (Episode 5)

“I’ll never forget Miss Molinka; I was standing at the ballet barre and she told me, ‘You’ll never be a ballerina.’ She said, ‘You don’t have the body for it,’ and I was like ‘Wow!’…but I’m a great believer of everything has happens for a reason.”

We talk with Tony nominee Brenda Braxton about working alongside Michael Bennett as the original Dreamgirls dance captain, what the old school New York theatre scene was like, and her advice for the next generation.

Recommendation: No specific art, but working hard. Doing good work.
