Dollie Eaglin started dance at a late age, even though she was inspired by the dancing shows she saw on TV as a young girl in the South. In this episode we discuss her path to the Las Vegas shows Donn Arden’s Hallelujah Hollywood and Jubilee! And the impact being part of those casts had on her in all of her pursuits since. Topics of racial discrimination, being a woman and being a teacher also come up as we talk about the how being in those shows shaped her as an artist and choreographer. As part of the opening cast of Jubilee!, a few fun anecdotes have been saved for the 40th anniversary episode releasing on July 31, 2021. She has had an interesting path so far. Enjoy!
