For more than 70 years, Toledo Ballet has been a vibrant leader in our region's performing arts community. Its acclaimed annual presentation of the holiday classic, The Nutcracker, is the longest-running in the nation.
Now, for the first time, WGTE will take viewers into the world of Toledo Ballet, following young dancers as they are diligently nurtured and encouraged to achieve the highest standards of artistic accomplishment. Révérence: Toledo Ballet includes rare experiences onstage and backstage, as dancers and instructors at Toledo Ballet share their creative passion, and bring the joy and inspiration of dance to thousands of patrons and students in Northwest Ohio.
The Creative Life reveals how four extraordinary people used their drive and imaginations to forge long and productive lives. The Arts are at the forefront of each of their individual experiences as Olga Boone and Marie Vogt share their stories and love of dance, Jon Hendricks talks about jazz and Ellen Wilt explains her journey as a visual artist. Although each has a unique background, they all have one thing in common—their passion for their art. Their stories show us how they have created lives that keep them inspired.
