In this episode of our Six Weeks to Fitness podcast, I will be joined by award winning choreographer and director, Millicent Johnnie. During the interview, Millicent will share her journey growing up in a small town in Louisiana, being enrolled in ballet classes at age 5 and reading biographies of Alvin Ailey and Katharine Dunham. In her teens, Millicent hosted a TV show called “Those Tender Years” that was met by protests and objection by the local KKK who subjected her to ongoing harassment and threats– an experience that Millicent credits for the resilience and determination behind her success today. Millicent believes that you can achieve anything you want in life as long as your mind, body and spirit is in balance. Millicent will also discuss the importance of living a healthy lifestyle and provide encouragement and advice for anyone trying to break into the entertainment industry.
