Arnold Spohr is outspoken, ambitious, demanding, uncompromising and even combative when it comes to dealing with those whose dedication to the arts falls short of his own. He is also one of the most honoured, respected and loved figures in the history of Canadian dance. Artistic director of the Royal Winnipeg Ballet for 30 years, Spohr put the company on the national and international map, touring the RWB to six continents. A legend in his own time. Spohr's contribution to the artistic life of Canada is ultimately immeasurable.Crabb, Michael is the author of 'Instinct for Success an Arnold Spohr' with ISBN 9780929003450 and ISBN 0929003454.
