Dance In America: Nureyev and the Joffrey Ballet/In Tribute to Nijinsky





 1981 | WNET/Thirteen, Public Broadcasting Service

A Peabody Award goes to WNET/Thirteen and PBS for the series Dance In America. Produced by WNET/Thirteen, New York, and brought to the American public through PBS, Dance In America created an interest in this art form that has never been manifested so strongly before. Dance is flourishing in schools; dance performances are drawing larger crowds than ever before; more articles about the dance are appearing in magazines and newspapers-and Dance In America can claim a large share of the credit for this surge of interest in the art of dance. The Peabody Award proudly goes to WNET/Thirteen and PBS for the stunning series, Dance In America.
