Publisher Comments:

The late Heinz Poll is best known as the founder, choreographer, and artistic director of Ohio Ballet, a dance company that flourished for more than thirty years and was called a ""gem"" and ""the best news in dance"" by critics in Boston and New York. Based at the University of Akron, Ohio Ballet toured forty-four states and several countries, including Italy and Mexico, often performing some of the sixty-plus works that Heinz Poll created for his dancers.

Book News Annotation:

In his memoirs, Poll tells about his teenage years when he was forced to spend the last two years of World War II in the German navy, and progresses to his maturity as a dancer directing a company in Akron, Ohio; the stops in between include France, New York, and other locations. An appendix lists Poll's choreography for the Ohio Ballet. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

About the Author

After retirement, Heinz Poll completed his memoir, A Time to Dance. In a distinctive voice both pungent and charming, he tells the compelling story of how a teenager forced to spend the last two years of World War II in the German navy eventually wound up directing a dance company in Akron, Ohio.
