Dmae Roberts talks with Toni Pimble & Riley Grannon , the founders of the Eugene Ballet Company.
When they started the ballet school in Eugene in 1978, they had no idea that it would grow into a $2 million dance company with original productions touring throughout the world. Eugene Ballet Company is on of the few ballet organizations with a woman leading as artistic director. She is also one of the few women in classical dance who choreographs. Listen to this Oregon Treasures feature story on Eugene Ballet.
This year long series produced by Dmae Roberts brings to light veteran arts organizations and artists who have made an impact for several decades on the artistic landscape of Oregon.
Throughout 2010, Stage and Studio will air these creative feature stories and highly produced half-hour specials of lengthy portraits.
You can hear Stage & Studio at the KBOO website or on 90.7FM live at 11am Tuesdays.
