Reinventing Ohio Ballet

Ohio Ballet is picking up speed lately after a “rough transition since 1999, when founding artistic director Heinz Poll retired and his successor, Jeffrey Graham Hughes, took the company’s reins. Turnover in personnel has been high, attendance at performances low. But such problems are not unusual for a dance company that makes dramatic changes in leadership style and artistic product.”
