Canada’s Royal Winnipeg Ballet would like to commemorate the passing one year ago of Arnold Spohr, RWB’s Artistic Director Emeritus. Mr. Spohr spent most of his life at the RWB as a dancer, choreographer and finally Artistic Director for thirty years. His extraordinary presence at the ballet is deeply missed.
“Mr. Spohr spent most of his life working for the Royal Winnipeg Ballet. He was absolutely instrumental in bringing the Company to international prominence, and he put his heart and soul into realizing that vision. We at the RWB are humbled and proud to carry on his legacy.” – RWB Artistic Director, Andre Lewis.
