Add your comment

This week we take a look behind the curtains to learn how a ballet is born.
We'll meet Local Ballerina Karen Gabey, conductor George Daugherty and chat with choreographer Jessica Lang as she rehearses her new ballet,Eightyone.
We'll even learn some fun facts about ballet shoes.

In between we'll meet some visual artists. First, Susana Arias, an international painter and sculptor who shows us how she approaches her really big canvases. Then it's off to the colorful and quirky studio of Beth Grippenstraw, whose art reflects her somewhat skewed view of the world as she battles chronic vertigo.
