Dancer With A Difference

The body of a dancer is celebrated as physical perfection on stage. Long, muscular limbs, executing an almost super-human range of motion, help define this form of expression. But a Boston-based artist is winning raves for challenging that notion.

This program aired on February 6, 2007. The audio for this program is not available.
