'Iowa Insights' podcast: Joffrey Ballet helps UI recover from flood
A special August 2009 edition of "Iowa Insights," a monthly podcast produced by the University of Iowa Office of University Relations, focuses on how the Joffrey Ballet is lending a hand to Hancher Auditorium and the School of Music.
In the show, Hancher Executive Director Chuck Swanson describes Joffrey's plans to perform two very different shows -- one in Chicago and one in Des Moines -- to raise money for the flooded complex. Swanson also shares the story behind the university's extraordinary relationship with the Joffrey.
