Life After Ballet: Wendy Whelan

Life After Ballet: Wendy Whelan

Wendy Whelan retired from the New York City Ballet at the age of 47, after a hip injury. She wasn't sure she'd ever dance again, but after reconstructive surgery and months of physical therapy, she briefly returned to the dance company that had been her home for 30 years. The new documentary 'Restless Creature' focuses on that period, when her identity was shattered. Also, book critic Maureen Corrigan reviews the novel 'Golden Hill.'
