Buffalo, NY – Ballet dancer Sergio Neglia has returned to his native homeland of Argentina this month for a six-city performance tour.

It will lead up to a final gala show this fall at the Colon Theatre in Buenos Aires. That's when Neglia will dance in honor of his late father, Jose Neglia, to mark the 40th anniversary of his father's tragic death.

WBFO'S Eileen Buckley met with Neglia and his wife, Heidi Halt for a conversation about commemorating his father's dance legacy.

The Youtube video is Jose Neglia performing as Witch Boy 40 years ago.
